About Curve

Spring is the perfect time for new beginnings, a fresh approach, and inspiring ideas to sustain us for the rest of the year. And so we’re very pleased to present the official relaunch issue of Curve! We hope you enjoy the new look—and the new quality—which makes reading the magazine in print even more enjoyable than it was before. We couldn’t think of a better person to grace our cover this issue than Cate Blanchett, star of our favorite lesbian movie, Carol. Plus, we have interviews with rising songstress Lauren Ruth Ward, the legendary Nona Hendryx, and insight from out political analyst Masha Gessen. We also focus on fitness, well-being, interior design, and style—and we welcome travel partner Olivia to share their upcoming vacations and adventures with us. Enjoy!
