DIVA: First, let’s find out a little more about you. When did you go vegan?

About DIVA Magazine

Activist, model and “gender capitalist” Rain Dove is our cover star this month, the first time an openly non-binary person has appeared on DIVA’s cover since our launch in 1994. In another exciting first, we’re making history by synchronising the launch of this groundbreaking issue with iconic men’s title Gay Times, who also have Rain on their cover. Rain Dove, a former firefighter from the US, has appeared in numerous spreads for magazines like Vogue, Elle and Cosmopolitan, as well as ad campaigns for brands such as Calvin Klein. Famous for modelling both womenswear and menswear, Rain is part of a movement simultaneously reinventing modelling while challenging traditional ideas of binary gender. In an exclusive interview with DIVA’s Roxy Bourdillon, Rain talks about the importance of pronouns, the impact working in the fashion industry has had on their self-esteem, and how they are capitalising on society’s perception of gender. Also in this issue… Scottish Labour politician Kezia Dugdale talks to DIVA editor Carrie Lyell about life after the jungle Roxy Bourdillon gets up close and personal with “flirty AF” YouTuber Ari Fitz Little acts of defiance: Comedian Suzi Ruffell tells us why she’s taking on the trolls Creating change: Filmmaker Fawzia Mirza on activism through art The future is fierce: Queer migrant poet Sonia Guiñansaca is breaking down borders Travel like you give a sh!t: Fat Gay Vegan shares his tips for moving through the world with kindness What’s next for the uprising?
