I have heard a lot about WOW! over the past few months, but had never had the opportunity to make it along until last Thursday. Since then, my friends and I have decided that we have to make it a staple of our going-out diaries, and I’d highly recommend you all do too!
Do you go to church? I’ve been thinking about it recently. I used to be quite religious, even studied it a little bit. Since I came out, however, I have found myself more and more pitted against the church, or rather, that the church is mostly against me. Within two years of coming out, I found myself pushing through anti-gay protesters, being called a sodomite and having Bible verses spat at me.
The excitement about the second outing of the BeLonG To Gay Prom has been steadily growing for the past couple of weeks and promises to be one of the LGBT events of the year. Gay Prom will be taking place on Sunday 24th October in Radisson Blu Hotel, Golden Lane, Dublin 8 which is a bank holiday weekend, so you have no excuses not to be there!
The Irish Times poll, conducted in August, shows that 67% of Irish people support the right of gay people to marry. The poll data broken down into age groups is even more promising, showing that support for gay marriage is strong in almost all age groups, only dipping to under 50% in those aged 55 [...]
I read a lot of blogs. Too many are the ones that reinforce exactly what I believe already. Some are about subjects I don’t know much about. Others take a different viewpoint from my own. Some of those bloggers have even managed to change my stubborn mind on issues over the years. They’re my favourites. [...]

While The Real L Word is struggles to show real lesbians, Funny or Die nails it with this hilarious spoof ad for a chat line with “real lesbians”. As usual, they manage to get a fantastic cast too. Can you name all of the “lesbians”?
GAZE comes of age! Celebrating its 18th birthday this year, the Dublin Lesbian & Gay Film Festival has just launched a programme of Irish and international cinematic treats for your viewing pleasure, all taking place in this August Bank Holiday Weekend. So we decided to go have a chat with them about what’s happening this year. Read on to discover what happened When Gaelick Met GAZE!
Is the reason most major gay pubs/clubs don’t try to attract lesbians down to the simple fact that we lesbians don’t represent a large enough percentage of the LGBTQ community who get out there and party? Or are lesbians their own worst enemy, or are the clubs just not giving us what we want?
The chaps over in LGBT entertainment website, QUOD would like to know about the online media viewing habits of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
Having previously posted on MILK Music Festival, I thought I should tell Gaelick readers to get themselves down to the Academy tomorrow night, 9th July, to get some MILK with their caKe!
So where were we with our sextuplets? Self-obsessed, Sapphic saps with more money and tattoos than sense; oh yeah, there we are.
There are five more Pride festivals to come around Ireland, including Kilkenny’s Out For the Weekend, running over the last weekend in August, Friday 27th to Sunday 29th. As if you needed an excuse to visit one of Ireland’s most beautiful and fun cities.
Has it really been a year? Out On Film, as part of the Galway Film Fleadh, begins on Wednesday 7th July and continues until the 10th, with another great selection of queer cinema treats. This is their fifth year with the Fleadh, presenting what looks like the best bunch of films on offer yet – features, lots of documentaries, and a big ol’ world premiere!
If the modern world is youth-obsessed, the modern gay world takes that to the extreme. You could go around thinking that there isn’t a gay, lesbian, bi or trans person over the age of 50, such is the lack of visibility. These are the people who created the very idea of the gay community that we now we enjoy, yet they are nowhere to be seen, eclipsed by those youngsters reaping the benefits of their fight.
The Real L Word, it has arrived on the shores of America. And may it stay there. The opening is our introduction to the six LA lesbians who have agreed to be followed around by a crew, showing how they live in their natural habitat. Sapphic Safari if you will.
