Romeo is Calling

Author of hit dating blog, ‘The Guyliner’, Justin Myers has found just as much success with his irst novel, The Last Romeo. Having been through the gay dating mill, he talks to Stephen Boylan about how inding ‘the one’ isn’t where it’s at anymore.

Back in 2010, Justin Myers, whose fantastic debut novel The Last Romeo has just been published in paperback, started a wildly popular dating blog under the nom de plume The Guyliner. Best known for casting a beady eye over The Guardian’s weekly Blind Dates column, Myers built a substantial and dedicated audience online with his cutting (but almost always affectionate) commentary and strong gif game. Prior to this, he had blogged a number of his own first dates, detailing over 60 nights out, each with a pre-date and post-date rating out of ten.

About GCN

We’ve got so much to talk about in this month’s issue, we’d better get started! Leading the charge is our cover star Conor O’Brien, the voice behind The Villagers. Conor dropped in to talk about their new album and what it’s like being an out gay man in the business. On a further musical note, Irish electro band Eden celebrate 20 years in the industry. They had many a tale to tell and GCN was delighted to listen! The GAZE film festival takes over cinema screens this month so we caught up with Desiree Akhavan, the writer and director of the much-lauded gay conversion therapy film The Miseducation Of Cameron Post, along with the creators of the essential documentary Outitude, detailing the history of Ireland’s lesbian community. On a more serious note, Evgeny Shtorn details his escape from Russian persecution only to be caught in the bureaucracy that is Ireland’s Direct Provision System. Plus Jamie Brady provides a hard-hitting photo essay on the effects on Grindr on the young male psyche. With all that awesome content on offer, you better start reading now!
