LGBT+ people are starting the f ght to be heard at the next big Catholic shindig: October’s Synod on Young People

GCN hits the streets just a day before the Pope arrives in Ireland for the World Meeting of Families (WMOF), the theme of which “all are welcome” needs to be changed to “all are welcome, except for some”. Those ‘some’ are Catholic LGBT+ organisations who had their applications for paid-for exhibition stands at the event ignored until the last minute, and then were told that there’s not enough space for them. At exactly the same time as they got the official rejection, other organisations were being off ered stands, free of charge, which suggests there was actually a surfeit of space.

About GCN

Our cover star, quintessential queen, Chanel is just one of the Dublin drag queens photographed by the up and coming to Steven Peice for our photo essay, ‘The Dreamers’. “I feel that in a way drag has always been seen as a goofy entertainment, and there’s no real focus on how these men are actually transforming themselves into fully realised fantasies,” Steven says, and we couldn’t agree more. Elsewhere we get a queer flava of what’s on offer in both the Fringe and Dublin Theatre Festivals this year, we ponder why TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists) have not made it across the water from England to our fair shores, people who identify under the plus in LGBT+ talk to us about the need to accept expanding queer identities, and we remember the mega-gay anthem that was Cher’s ‘Believe’. It’s a jam-packed issue, of that there can be no doubt!
