Now that the sun has finally cast its rays over most of the UK, it’s officially summer and we lady-lovers are kicking back to a summer soundtrack mostly featuring songs by our cover star Mary Lambert (p68). Pride season so far has been inspiring, hasn’t it? It’s so great to see so many of us, celebrating our diverse communities, and DIVA’s coverage of Pride In London and UK Black Pride (p76) shows the confidence many of us feel. How di› erent, not only to the experience of lesbian and bi women in countries such as South Africa (p48) but also to how life was for queer women in the UK not so long ago (p74). But our growing confidence is being reflected in tons of ways today, be it the ways we choose to wear our body hair (p29) or be proud of our vulvas (p60), however they look and whatever negative views we hear about them. We’re celebrating bisexual stuntwoman Tiger Rudge (p26), who pushes her body to the limit in some of Hollywood’s biggest action movies, and finally, we’re thrilled to feature DIVA’s first ever dog fashion shoot (p62). If you’re reading this in the digital format, you’re in for a treat with our hilarious behind-the-scenes video. Move over, Creature Comforts!

About DIVA Magazine

Singer-songwriter and Same Love vocalist Mary Lambert talks self-love, body positivity and mental health with DIVA this month. We also snagged an exclusive photo-shoot with her and you lucky digital readers can watch the behind the scenes film we made of it. Elsewhere in the issue is ANOTHER behind the scenes video of a very different photo-shoot. This one was a first for DIVA: dogs in designer-wear. It's our favourite fashion shoot to date and the photos and video must be seen to be believed!
