GCN - Gay Community News

As Ireland's longest-running free gay publication, Gay Community News (GCN) boasts the largest gay and lesbian readership in the country. Since it was first published as a free newspaper in 1989, GCN has been distributed in pubs, clubs, cafés, libraries, resource centres and bookshops throughout Ireland, north and south, and has built a loyal readership along the way. Because GCN has been around for so long, picking up your monthly copy has become an established routine with a large proportion of Ireland's estimated half million lesbians and gay men.



Glória, Dublin’s Lesbian and Gay Choir, was founded in October 1995. An ad placed in Gay Community News invited singers interested in forming a choir. About 25 people came along on that first night – some who still sing with the choir – and today we have a singing membership of around 54. The choir’s repertoire is wide ranging; from musicals to madrigals and from classical to camp. The songs are chosen sometimes to surprise, sometimes to challenge, but always to entertain!
