PHOTO NICO KAISER

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL

With all the razzle-dazzle of same-sexthe Olympics descending on Rio this summer (5-21 August), there has never been a better time to visit this iconic South American city. A series of keenly diffentiated neighbourhoods situated on neighbouring bays, Rio sits between the sea and the greenly-forested mountains, offering tourists an urban holiday like no other. Don your bikini and hit the teem-ing, world-famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, check out the wealth of museums and galleries, and stare down at the city from the feet of Christ the Redeemer on the mountain of Corcovado. Homosexuality has been legal in Brazil since 1830 but recent years have seen the gradual introduction of rights and protections that begin to establish the equal citizenship of LGBT Brazilians. Marriage has been available to same-sex couples since 2013.

About DIVA Magazine

In the new issue Skin from Skunk Anansie talks to us about being a successful black gay rocker. She's had the courage to play with gender, to strut, preen and mean it right from the beginning and she's made it work for her. Just wait until you see the stunning photo-shoot that acompanies the interview. Oh, and please welcome our new columnist Jack Monroe who, from this issue, will be writing exclusively for DIVA about their parenting experiences. February is, of course, LGBT history month and our time-sleuths have brought the past to light in features that examine the importance of historical fiction for lady-lovers. Also in this issue: Kate Bornstein – who knows a thing or two about breaking gender rules. Author Chinelo Okparanta. Singer Aneesa Chaudhry. Club promoter and DJ Claud Cunningham. Oscar-nominated Emma Donoghue, author of Room, now on general release as a film. With a nod to Valentine’s Day, we asked you to tell us why you love your partner. Rosie Wilby explains why she still treasures her exes. The hidden presence of bi women in LGBT history. Ursula Martinez. Izzy Rabey AKA Madame Dollar explores issues of identity. Jess T Dugan's explores a gentle kind of masculinity in her photography. Travel to Bournemouth or Niki de Saint Phalle's art garden in Tuscany and check out our top tips for a memorable holiday Plus all the very best in life, scene, books, film, music and TV.
