Thank you Jane Czyzselska and DIVA magazine. The feature “Looking so good it hurts” (June 2017) brilliantly describes how ideas about beauty, desirability and acceptability are manufactured by entrepreneurs concerned only with personal gain. The cost to the health and wellbeing of the people they sell their ideas to does not enter their considerations. The call at the end of the feature to live according to our own ideas and what is in our own best interests is inspiring. Essential reading.



I just wanted to send you guys a thank you from two very pleased readers in Sweden. My wife and I discovered DIVA about a year ago and we can’t believe we don’t have a magazine like this in Sweden. Every month we look forward to the new issue. When I lived in Australia a few years ago I was lucky enough to be there when they launched Bound magazine. It was also the highlight of the month for me. So when we finally found your magazine it was a sense of recognition and I realised how much I’ve missed reading about our community. Just two weeks ago we welcomed our first child, a daughter named Hailey, to the world, and now it feels even more precious to be part of something bigger than just our little family. So thank you for this great magazine and giving us a little glimpse in to our community.
