About GCN

This month, it's a very special edition of GCN as we celebrate our queer bodies and explore the crucial importance of self-acceptance. In our cover feature, 17 GCN readers bare all and talk to us about their relationships with their beautiful, unique physiques. Elsewhere, we offer some ideas and options for those hoping to turn over a new leaf in the new year. We also explore the meaning, and benefits of the oft-discussed but little understood concept of mindfulness. And of course, all the best community news, gossip, music, and much more!
