Equality (but not for all)

THE RECENT US SUPREME COURT RULING IN FAVOUR OF SAME-SEX MARRIAGE WAS HERALDED AS A DECISIVE VICTORY FOR GAY RIGHTS. BUT AMERICA’S LGBT COMMUNITY STILL LACKS EQUALITY IN MANY KEY AREAS

AFTER EQUAL MARRIAGE

It spawned the hashtag: #LoveWins! On 26 June, the Supreme Court of the United States – which decides on the constitutionality of laws passed by congress and individual states – issued a landmark civil rights ruling forcing all 50 states to allow same-sex marriage. Penning the majority opinion, Justice Anthony Kennedy declared of lesbian and gay couples: “They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right”. That same day, lesbian and gay couples lined up for marriage licenses across the remaining 13 Republican-controlled states that had held out against the rising tide of same-sex marriage recognition spreading across the rest of America.

About DIVA Magazine

Welcome to DIVA, Britain’s leading magazine for lesbian, gay, bi and queer women. This free 22-page sampler features some of the best of our recent content and will give you a taste of what you can expect from DIVA. There’s a sexy photoshoot with real lesbian, bi and trans women from our Body Issue, a gorgeous covershoot with Orange Is The New Black star Samira Wiley AKA soft butch sweetheart Poussey, and our first ever doggy-style shoot was a hit with readers (it’s not true what they say about working with dogs, our poochie models were exceptionally well-behaved). Every month we cover politics with a big and a small P, whether that’s Sandi Toksvig’s Women’s Equality Party or the patchy experience of equality for some in our communities, both in the UK and the USA, and we report on the latest research, which reveals that despite the many changes in equality legislation, homophobia still drives some employers’ recruitment decisions. Our January issue predicted 2016’s top 10 LGBT holiday hot spots, from Nepal to Hastings. We also regularly feature cartoonists like Jacky Fleming, whose take on our Everyday Lesbophobia blog humorously outlined the daily macro- and micro-aggressions experienced by many lesbian and bi women. We hope you enjoy our taster; why not take out a digital subscription and see what else we have in store?
