DIVA's June issue now available at

Featuring Emma Kennedy, new columnist Susan Calman and lesbians in country music

Thu, 09 May 2013 17:39:55 GMT | Updated 3 years today

Is our cover star Emma Kennedy the best-connected lesbian you've never heard of? In our June issue we chat with writer and Celebrity Masterchef winner Emma, who has some great celebrity stories to tell. What happened when she met her idol, actress and screenwriter Emma Thompson? What did she think of Sue Perkins the first time they met? Emma is a fantastic interviewee and we think you'll love this cover feature, which is accompanied by some great new photos by DIVA photographers L+R.


In the June issue we also catch up with rock band Hunter Valentine, who we think are making lesbian rock cool again. We're also thrilled to introduce two new columnists to the DIVA team, comedian Susan Calman and self-described geek and digital expert Rhoda Meek. Plus we have features about the ways in which disability may affect sexual identity, a great piece on lesbian whistleblowers and Uganda's leading lesbian activist speaks out.

And of course there's all the usual great regular content including this month's columns from The Rubbish Lesbian and Donna McPhail, music, film and book reviews, problem page, erotic fiction and LGBT events listings.
