About GCN

In this travel-themed issue of GCN, we profile LGBT+ Irish people who have made new lives abroad and at the same time welcome the new members to our queer family who have travelled from around the globe to make Ireland their home. Inside you’ll find tips from travellers with ideas on where you could plan that next trip. With relationships with other countries forefront in our minds, we also take a look at Brexit, how it affects us currently and what it could mean for the future.
