Letter from the Editor


This month saw the tragic demise of LGBT+ mental health charity PACE (p18) and now the UK’s only dedicated LGBT+ domestic violence charity is facing the loss of its helpline if the Home Office doesn’t cough up. Broken Rainbow helps tens of thousands of people enduring domestic violence and without its service, lives may well be harmed or lost. You can help by donating, writing to your local MP or volunteering. Contact the Manchester-based charity at Elsewhere in the magazine we have a corking interview with American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson (p68), and our TV insider Jacquie Lawrence assesses the future of lesbian and bi drama and asks if we’re better offonline (p42). We’re very proud to be media sponsors of the 30th BFI Flare, London’s LGBT+ fi lm festival, and our fi lm editor Lucy Peters has selected some of the highlights (p46). As LGBT history month continues, Christobel Hastings explores the museums expanding their archives to include LGBT content (p56). We love how Freiya Benson used photography to help her learn to love her body (p52), we’re always keen to hear from you about how you’ve overcome diffi culties or deal with homo- or biphobia. That’s why we were so glad when Charlotte Dingle told us she’d made friends with her former school bully (p62). Love is always stronger than hate. Finally, you may have noticed the absence of Anna Richardson, our publicised cover star for this issue; sadly she was unwell but, rest assured, she’ll be gracing DIVA soon!
