About GCN

“I believe that we are never more beautiful than we are now,” says photographer Paul Connell, who shot the cover of our second annual queer elders issue. Inside his photo-feature celebrates ageing in the LGBT+ community, mental health columnist Ray O’Neill talks about embracing older role models, and 73 year-old facilitator with the Gold group for gay and bisexual men tell us about life getting better and better.
