Letter from the Editor


As we go to press, we learned that openly gay Guatemalan politician Sandra Morán has been voted into congress. Congresswoman Morán set up the country’s first lesbian collective 20 years ago and helped organise Guatemala’s first ever Gay Pride event in 1998. Morán joins an all too small and elite group of lesbian, bi and trans women worldwide who have been elected to govern in their respective countries (p48). We hope that the women profi led in our feature inspire you to take charge and make change in the coming year. Looking ahead to 2016, our new music editor Charlotte Richardson Andrews selects the acts to watch (p30) while Susan Calman (p22) tells how she plans to celebrate the New Year. We’re thrilled to have Ellen Page (p54) as our cover star, talking about how her life, and Hollywood, have changed since she came out, and her forthcoming film, Freeheld. We’ve got tons more interviews with inspiring women too: from comedian Margaret Cho (p42), adventurer Sarah Outen (p74) and Transparent actress Cherry Jones (p40) to Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix), who stars in TV drama Jessica Jones (p38), and black feminist punk band Big Joanie (p46). Finally, this month we have two great offers on our print edition – get 3 issues for £7.99 or, even better, 6 issues for just £14.99. That’s 37% off the cover price. And an offer you won’t fi nd anywhere else. More details on p14.
