GCN30 Exhibition

By GCN

description

As part of the celebrations of GCN’s 30th Birthday, we are mounting a beautiful retrospective exhibition at the Gallery of Photography in Meeting House Square during the Dublin Pride Festival. The exhibition will chart the history of Ireland LGBT+ community over the past three decades through the pages of its community magazine, Gay Community News (GCN).

Curated by GCN's founder, Tonie Walsh, the GCN30 exhibition will use archival material from our beloved publication to tell a momentous story of social change, driven by activists who envisioned an Ireland where all people were equal.

Join us as we present the key moments that shaped LGBT+ Ireland, from decriminalisation to marriage equality and gender recognition, 30 years of political, cultural and social progress documented and celebrated.

GCN is the national LGBT+ press in Ireland and is the oldest publication of its sort in the world. All of you, our readers are part of this story, and all of you have been part of GCN over the years.

As a publication made by the community for the community, we feel that crowdfunding mirrors our values most. We really want you to be part of this history-making exhibition, so we’re asking you to come on board to help fund it. Be there with our team as we present a look-back at 30 momentous years of a little publication that changed lives, and get some fabulous rewards along the way!

The money we raise thanks to your generous contribution will be used for venue hire, to design, mount, produce and launch the exhibition in style, and to reward our wonderful pledgers.

We have already secured funding from The Community Foundation of Ireland to begin work on this ambitious project. All we need now is your support to bring it to life.

You can read more about the history behind our exhibition here.

Thank you for taking the time to read about GCN30 Exhibition. We hope that you will support us and join us in celebrating 30 years of queer Irish life.
