Finding Time For Yourself

PEOPLE OFTEN ASK ME WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE A SAMESEX PARENT. WELL IT’S PRETTY MUCH THE SAME AS BEING A PARENT. ONLY THAT YOUR PARTNER IS OF THE SAME GENDER.

Joking aside, there are certain challenges that my wife and face as same sex parents. Challenges which massively impact our emotional and mental health. One of the biggest issues in our two years of parenthood has been the fact that my wife is not legally recognised as a parent to our children.

About GCN

We’re closing our 30th anniversary celebrations with a bang, celebrating the year of the activist. With that in mind, we arranged for community leaders to speak to the next generation of trailblazers as both sides share their experiences. A Brazilian writer living in Ireland takes a look at his home country following the election of Bolsonaro, while Marty St Clair, one of the scientists behind the discovery of AZT, speaks about the beginnings of the battle against HIV and AIDS. Frank McDonald stops by to talk about his recently released memoirs. There’s an essential look at mental health in the queer community, and the people behind the awesome Dublin Lesbian Line tell us their plans for the future. You can also expect a roundup of a momentous year for LGBTQI+ folk and your community magazine. We couldn’t have done it without you, dear readers!
