About GCN

We’re out in the nick of time with our special Repeal issue, featuring an iconic photo by Katie Donohoe, taken the fateful day Maser’s repeal mural on the wall of The Project was painted over. Inside we reveal the results of our survey on the queer referendum vote, ask LGBT’s about the issues involved and speak to Anna Cosgrave, the creator of the Repeal Project. We meet the powerhouse protest group Radical Queers Resist and the writer and director behind ‘A Day In May’, a major stage production celebrating the 2015 marriage equality referendum victory. It’s a choc-a-bloc issue with a queer activism heart. Read it now!
