in memory of lyra mckee

It’s been a really exciting month at DIVA. As well as putting together another excellent issue, we’ve been celebrating lesbian visibility (even more so than usual) with our annual Power List, breaking new ground with DIVA Box Office, and planning for the DIVA Awards, which take place in June. I’m already fretting about what to wear… But we do all of this with a heavy heart, as our thoughts have been in Northern Ireland, with the family and friends of Lyra McKee. The 29-year-old journalist was murdered during riots in the Creggan area of Derry on Good Friday, with tributes pouring in soon after the news broke. A hugely talented writer with a book deal, her name in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 and bylines in publications including Buzzfeed, the Atlantic and others,…

Editor Carrie Lyell “Her calming presence in the DIVA office, and how she makes my words good.” Deputy editor Roxy Bourdillon “Her lovely face, impeccable grammar and passion for making the world a better place.” Staff writer Danielle Mustarde “Her top vegan and eco-friendly tips, and accidentally getting matching haircuts.” Sub-editor Ellen Tout “I’ll miss the sense of community, fun and wise words that working for lovely Team DIVA offers.

LETTERS FINDING ME I came out four or five years ago. DIVA came out a year before I was born. I can’t actually remember how I discovered it, probably through one of the many gay folk I followed on Instagram. But since I got my subscription, it’s been one of the most important things in my journey to accepting myself. Before I realised I was a lesbian, I felt scared and alone and lost, and when I finally accepted myself, those feelings didn’t just suddenly disappear. But DIVA helped ease them. I found a community in its pages while I found my own in real life.

60 SECONDS WITH… NIMMO DANIELLE MUSTARDE MEETS LONDON-BORN DANCE-POP DUO NIMMO DIVA: Why Nimmo? NIMMO: Nimmo is Sarah’s surname. In just three words, describe your sound. Tough, heartfelt, pop. Musically, who are your biggest influences? It ranges so much. The UK dance scene is a big influence. Artist wise? Older, 80s bands like Tears For Fears and Frank Ocean. Mocha latte, oat milk flat white or green teas all round? Oat milk flat white – or straight up black coffee. At your recent events, Curated By: Nimmo, you pushed to platform queer women in the arts. Why? There’s a significant underrepresentation of women in the arts, and the nights which do platform women’s work tend to be quite niche. We’re trying to create nights that are female and queer-focused but feel fully inclusive and in the vibe. Follow Reva and Sarah @nimmonimmo This month IN…
