LETTERS

I MADE A SCENE

Star Letter

I created my own social group because I couldn’t find where all the lesbians were, as I’m not into doing football/rugby/ sports or being drunk on the men’s gay scene. Now we have almost 600 women in Lesbian Socials in Leeds, and a bar where a lot of lesbians go and it isn’t a lesbian bar per se! Great times. We recently celebrated the fourth birthday of our social group.

About DIVA Magazine

Our cover star, Hannah Hart, has over two million fans who log into her quirky YouTube cookery show and it’s not hard to see why. Funny, talented, stylishly androgynous (and let’s face it, it’s still rare to see a show fronted by a boyish girl) and big on smarts, Hannah is our kind of woman. In her interview with DIVA she also shows us other sides to the goofball host who counts Jamie Oliver as a fan. While we’re fangirling, it seems a good time to mention actress Sophie Ward who talks about her part in the stage adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s dystopian novel Brave New World. Elsewhere in this issue, we address racism in our LGBT communities and what we can all do to challenge and eradicate it. Our communities have a proud history of pulling together to support each other, whether that was lesbians and bi women supporting gay men during the AIDS crisis or gay and bi women challenging inequality in respect of class or disability, and we have a duty to work alongside queer people of colour who experience overt and covert racism daily. As we approach National Coming Out Day on 12 October, we present tips on how and when to let people know. Our wedding feature is chock full of suggestions for wedding and honeymoon venues and destinations, so whether you or someone you know is planning for their big day, we hope you’ll find it useful. Also in this issue: Queer baiting on TV Eurogames in Stockholm With same-sex marriage rights won, what's next for the USA? WEGAN tell us all about their new dating site, Find Femmes Amy Dillwyn: Victorian writer, industrialist and cigar smoker Scene: Brighton's Traumfrau And all the very best in life, scene, books, film, music and TV
