About GCN

In this issue of GCN we celebrate sexuality and all the great things that get us in the mood - feeling safe, respected and seen. To that end, we have an amazing photo series by Hazel Coonagh of the current Mister Leather Ireland. We dive into the world of ‘cam girls’ and have a frank discussion of male sexuality from the editor of Quench, followed by a profile of the wild life of screenwriter David McGillivray. In community news, we look at the launch of Call It Out - a new campaign which aims to address homophobia in Ireland, we get the lowdown on what to expect at the TRANS-FUSION Trans Arts Festival and check in with the keynote speakers at the Gay Health Forum. You can also expect interviews with two super cool LGBT+ musical acts – Ireland’s SOAK and Lebanon's Mashrou' Leila. This is a good one, folks!
