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.
"As a #queer woman of colour, it’s still so rare to see or hear myself either onstage or in the audience" - comedian @sophiedukebox on being a black bi babe in a white man world 💜💙💖 #bi #bivisibilityday #throwback https://t.co/Ug4D8y7X9Y pic.twitter.com/KERvZKbwRR— DIVA Magazine (@DIVAmagazine) September 23, 2018
