NXF: Progressive Activism And Global Perspectives

by Adam Long

GCN has a global theme for this month’s edition, with a focus on the climate change crisis and environmental sustainability. For us in the National LGBT Federation - publishers of GCN - there has always existed an overarching link between LGBT+ rights and many other socially progressive movements, which, in addition to environmentalism, include the likes of feminism and women’s rights and the separation of Church and State.

Since our foundation, The National Gay Federation (as we were then called) has recognised the importance of working in concert with other like minded civil society organisations. There is certainly a rich history of cooperation between LGBT and women’s rights advocates in particular which continues into present times.

About GCN

In this issue of GCN we talk about the fact that we all live on planet earth and right now our home is in crisis. To that end, a member of Extinction Rebellion Ireland, who will co-host our event Mayday, speaks about their journey to awareness. We have a series of interviews with people who have made changes in their lives which will help the planet. Mr Gay Ireland speaks about overcoming childhood trauma, while activist Vitalina Koval talks about the situation in Ukraine. Inside, we look at life after Direct Provision and we celebrate the fine folk behind LOOK (Loving Our Out Kids). On the arts side, we highlight shows in the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival and artist Brian Teeling talks about his new exhibition in IMMA. It’s time to save the planet, people, join the rebellion!
