Acting Up In Amsterdam

Robbie Lawlor of ACT UP Dublin shares his most powerful moments of the 22nd International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam, AIDS 2018, at which protests and radical messages were the order of the day.

The 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018) was held in Amsterdam between July 23 and 27. This year’s theme, ‘Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges’, drew attention to the need of rights-based approaches to more eff ectively reach key populations. AIDS 2018 aimed to promote the human rights of particularly vulnerable communities, such as people living with HIV, displaced populations, men who have sex with men, people in prisons and other closed settings, people who use drugs, sex workers, transgender people, women and girls and young people, and to collaborate in fighting the disease beyond country borders.

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!
