Ray O’Neill

In the wake of the referendum on the eighth, we should remember that Pride is about celebrating our autonomous queer sexuality, instead of whitewashing our sex lives in order fit in.

OPINION:

Before the referendum result there were calls for muted markings of a potential Yes to preclude celebrations like those following the gay marriage referendum. How typical of male traditional privilege, to oblige a bowed head and sombre refl ection as we crossed the darkened door into a repealed Ireland; to fail to value the true import of this referendum against a shame-fi lled and shaming Irish history which has repeatedly not only denied, but repressed, imprisoned and destroyed women, their sexuality, and their bodies.

About GCN

It’s our bumper Pride issue and we’ve got so much in store for you, we hardly know where to start! First up on our cover are the gorgeous Glória, Dublin’s lesbian and gay choir and star donators to our GCN30 exhibition Fundit campaign, who talk to us about being one great big alternative family. It’s appropriate, since the Dublin Pride theme this year is ‘We Are Family’ and in keeping we talk to groups of friends who consider each other kin, while Justin McAleese talks about our need for solidarity as the Pope’s visit to the World Meeting on Families excludes LGBT families. We remember the tragic murder of Declan Flynn, which sparked the first gay rights march in Ireland, and reflect on the situation facing LGBTs in Latin America, where brutal murders take place every day. We get educated on Intersex issues and talk to Minister Katherine Zappone about the governments LGBTI+ Youth Strategy, the first of it’s kind in the world. Plus Rupert Everett talks to us about his love for Oscar Wilde and growing older as a totally out actor. And that’s just the beginning of what’s on offer. Get reading now!
