About GCN

Our second annual sex issue is a hotbed of intimacy issues, as we explore the effect dating apps have had on modern gay relationships with scientist and author Giovanni Frazzetto. We meet some of the crack-team making sure we’re all in good sexual health at the Gay Men’s Health Service, while Avram Finkelstein, one of the men behind the iconic 1980s Silence = Death poster, talks art and AIDS activism with ACT UP’s Will St Leger. Anna Mac Carthy Adams gives a timely update on the complex situation same-sex parents currently face, despite the passing of the marriage referendum and children’s legislation, and we meet the man behind the return of Silver Stars, a moving musical about gay men who dared to be out and proud in Ireland of the 1980s.
