In all their Glória!

There’s excitement in the air for the GCN Pride Issue cover shoot, and, if we’re lucky, there’s about to be a ton of rainbowcoloured confetti too. Peter Dunne is on hand to capture the event.

The glorious Glória gang turn up to a studio in Harold’s Cross on a hot Sunday in June, all dressed in their whitest whites, ready for their close-ups. There’s no doubting their enthusiasm, or the people wrangling skills of Derek McBrien, but one question remains, with 25 members here to become cover stars – will they all fit?

Everyone gathers inside. The sun is beaming and the windows of the fourth floor studio are immediately thrown wide. While Hana Tuhami chats to the appropriately named Sarah Ní Choirbín, lights are set up and plans are made on just how to launch all this confetti (more on that later). The musical troupe mill around the space, their bright shirts popping against the painted black walls, the lively personalities of Emmet Jordan O’Reilly and Martin Rochford popping even more so.

About GCN

It’s our bumper Pride issue and we’ve got so much in store for you, we hardly know where to start! First up on our cover are the gorgeous Glória, Dublin’s lesbian and gay choir and star donators to our GCN30 exhibition Fundit campaign, who talk to us about being one great big alternative family. It’s appropriate, since the Dublin Pride theme this year is ‘We Are Family’ and in keeping we talk to groups of friends who consider each other kin, while Justin McAleese talks about our need for solidarity as the Pope’s visit to the World Meeting on Families excludes LGBT families. We remember the tragic murder of Declan Flynn, which sparked the first gay rights march in Ireland, and reflect on the situation facing LGBTs in Latin America, where brutal murders take place every day. We get educated on Intersex issues and talk to Minister Katherine Zappone about the governments LGBTI+ Youth Strategy, the first of it’s kind in the world. Plus Rupert Everett talks to us about his love for Oscar Wilde and growing older as a totally out actor. And that’s just the beginning of what’s on offer. Get reading now!
