What does it mean to be gay and Gaelic in today’s world? Twelve writers from both sides of the Big Pond-both Irish and of Irish descent-aim to find out through a mix of fiction, poetry, play excerpts, and memoir. Love, politics, family, and Catholicism are the powerful forces at play here, all tendered with the unmistakable and complex feelings one associates with their home country. Their words sing of pain and pride, and always with an ear for storytelling. You will not forget their voices long after the neighborhood pub has closed.
