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.
