welcome to the issue

WHEN ACTOR Emily Atack wrote a piece for us last year on the sexual harassment she’s subjected to on social media, the response was immediate – and depressing. Thousands of you shared your own stories of being bombarded with similar images. Which is why we’ve teamed up with Emily and two MPs to start a campaign to make cyberflashing illegal. Because as Emily writes powerfully on page 50, we need to rebrand ‘dick pics’. When they’re unsolicited they’re traumatic and offensive. And they should be as unacceptable as someone flashing you in the street. Also in this issue we’ve handed over our fashion pages to a sector of the industry hard hit by the pandemic: fashion journalism students at Central Saint Martins starting out in their careers. The creatives pitched their…

over to you...

Have your say… Email us at feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk Find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @GraziaUK VIVA VINTAGE! I read with interest Second? Best! (28 June). The women featured in their second-hand outfits all looked amazing! I’ve long been an advocate of not buying new. I’m surrounded by second-hand clothes and furniture. I don’t feel embarrassed to tell someone I paid £5 for a dress they’ve complimented me on. Extending the lifecycle of items also slows consumption, which means less waste, emissions, unfair wages and animal cruelty. There’s a real sense of pride in thrifting. Shanie FIND YOUR VOICE I felt the actor’s pain reading Michaela Coel’s emotional triumph (28 June). I was in a relationship with the father of my child when things went too far. I felt violated and deeply damaged. Not only…

A BALANCED TONE Thank you so much for Kenya Hunt’s piece, How to tackle hyperpigmentation (14 June). Generally, articles about this focus on Caucasian skins and it was so refreshing to read a piece tailored to Black and brown skins. I am now far better informed on how to address this and will be overhauling my skin regime as a result. Thank you for generally providing a more inclusive and diverse magazine and recognising that many of your readers are from all ethnicities, sexualities, genders, body types and abilities. It’s even more joyous to find you in my post box every fortnight! Amanda…

ignore stalking and you dismiss femicide

“On 18 June came the tragic news that yet another woman had been murdered. Gracie Spinks, 23, a horse-loving model, is thought to have been killed by a former colleague who she’d reported to the police for stalking her. According to reports, she grew to fear him when he became infatuated with her. Recently, we’ve been promised more protections to tackle violence against women, then we hear time and again stories of stalking cases being mishandled; evidence not properly investigated. Every case that isn’t taken seriously leaves victims more vulnerable. Stalkers’ behaviour can escalate to murder. Ignore it, and you ignore the urgent need to stop femicide.”…

for goodness’ sake! why it’s not great to act like you’re good online

WHAT ARE WE TO MAKE of the fall of Chrissy Teigen? The model, entrepreneur and wife of John Legend, who enjoyed a decade as one of the foremost wits of social media, but who recently outed herself as ‘a troll, full stop, and I am so sorry’ after it transpired some of her online witticisms were, in fact, explosions of cruelty directed at individuals who’d done nothing much to deserve them. One of the major takeaways, perhaps, is that associating your public image with an idea of overarching goodness is a risky business. When it turns out you’re actually not that fundamentally good after all – who is? – the fall is going to be harder, faster and further than it would have been if you’d copped to the failings…

1. New in BO BURNHAM His musical Netflix stand-up Inside is one of the best observed, funniest, yet faintly heartbreaking things we’ve seen. Join us in a rousing chorus of White Woman’s Instagram ! 2. Up JANET KIM Breakout star of the latest series of Kim’s Convenience, which is the sitcom you get into after you’ve finished – and grieved for – Schitt’s Creek. 3. Up KIRSTEN DUNST Having observed our appreciation of Bo Burnham, our algorithm prompted us towards On Becoming A God In Central Florida, in which Dunst is perfection in an ’80s wardrobe. 4. New in CARL NASSIB Of the LA Raiders, first NFL star to come out as gay, so: nice one. Surely only a matter of time till the Premier League manages it too? 5. Up A-ROD Alex Rodriguez – Mr J-Lo back before Bennifer reformed – who popped…
