It was with a mixture of anticipation and excitement that I made my way to the official release of the Report from the Gender recognition advisory group (GRAG), by Social Protection Minister Joan Burton yesterday morning.
Tonight I assume a lot of you lovely readers will be heading to the Dyke Night! Back in the day when I toddled along it was such a great night and so many lovely ladies! This year it has a 1920′s theme so glad your glad rags on and get down the Purty Kitchen.
Mischief is a new night which started in The George bar a few weeks ago. Taking place every Friday, the idea behind the night is that each week has a different theme, and so far the organisers have gone all out to give the clubbers in attendance the best experience possible.
This is an open invitation to all members of the transgender community to join TENI
for a consultation with the Rights Now campaign:

Should the Irish government deport LGBT people to their countries where homosexuality is criminalised?
There are various kinds of comments whirling around the LGBT interwebs about a recent vote in the United Nations. Many of them boil down to making an assertion along the lines of: “The UN says it’s okay to kill gays!” So, what are the rumours, and what are the facts?
Linc (Lesbians In Cork) is pleased to announce its new Wednesday evening group, Phoenix, for women aged up to 23. If you’re young, interested in all things LGBT and in the Cork area, this one’s for you.
The final episode of Lip Service – the Beeb’s series featuring fictional Lesbians Of Scotland – airs tonight: Tuesday, 16th November 2010 at 10:30pm. Members of Gaelick will be following, tweeting, commenting, opining and (more than likely) gasping at the Sapphic thrills and spills. So, join us!
Acting Out is the Dublin LGBT drama group for LGBT every Thursday at Outhouse. Catch “OutTakes” this week!
