About Curve

S ummer is synonymous with Pride, as destinations all around the globe hold LGBTQ celebrations from June through September in a time of sunshine, self-expression, and socializing. It’s the season when we bask in the feeling of coming into our own, together. This issue, with rumors that beloved lesbian TV show The L Word will be revived by Showtime, we caught up with Kate Moennig, who played the iconic character of Shane. We also spoke with liberal political commentator Sally Kohn about her book The Opposite of Hate, which urges us to emphasize what connects us rather than what divides us. And, as your soundtrack for the pleasant weeks ahead, we recommend putting the unstoppable out musician Hayley Kiyoko on your playlist. We also put Montreal and Oakland on your map, and we hope you’ll feel inspired to join other women in life-changing adventures with Olivia Travel. Finally, I would like to send a sincere thank you to the many readers who contacted us about Curve’s relaunch. We’re as delighted as you are with the new direction!
