Joining presenters Heather Peace and Rosie Wilby in the studio this week is October issue guest editor, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, aka Lady Phyll.

 

 

Packed full of game-changing women, this month's cover shoot by photographer Elainea Emmott is a powerful celebration of the creativity of women of colour in the UK.

 

All of the women featured, in big ways and small, are helping put women of colour front and centre in LGBTQ life.

 

Joining Phyll will be "maverick promoter" Yvonne Taylor whose club nights are all about making everyone feel welcome, "A little start at unity", as she explains in the new issue, alongside DIVA columnist, CEO of Gaysians, and DJ, Reeta Loi. Tune in for the full herstory behind the brand new issue.

 

Alongside Lady Phyll and co, Birmingham-born rapper RoxXxan will also be live in the studio...

 

“I love women. Not just because I fancy them, but I think women are amazing. We are actual Gs, for real. #Women!” RoxXxan told DIVA's Roxy Bourdillon in an interview in the September issue.

 

We can't wait to hear more on that point of view, RoxXxan...

 

 

On top of all of that lovely live stuff, northern reporter Roisin Murray chats to Canadian americana artist, Kaia Kater, and Rachel Shelley catches up with comedian and "black bi babe in a white man world", Sophie Duker.

 

 

Plus, of course our lesbro Jonathan Phang will be back with the LGBTQ+ news. Make sure you tune in this Tuesday!

 

 

Listen live to Radio DIVA at 6.30pm every Tuesday (on Resonance 104.4FM and DAB in London and online at player.resonancefm.com) or catch up anytime at mixcloud.com/resonance 🎶​
