We’re celebrating our 25th Anniversary this month at Gay CommunityNews and we’ve created a short documentary looking back on a quarter of a century of being the voice of the queer nation. We’d love if you could share this on your website, we think people might be interested in seeing it. It was still illegal to be gay when GCN first went to press, so it’s a bit amazing looking at how far Ireland has come in this time.

Fair gay though, in fairness.
