Sampler: Lez Spread The Word #2
When we interviewed Lez Spread The Word on the Stack blog last year, co-editor-in-chief Stéphanie Verge asserted the magazine’s raison d’être — “There’s very little out there in terms of media for women who love women”. But perspectives in the bilingual publication span far beyond just lesbian culture.
This second issue speaks to the Canadian prime minister about queer rights, offers advice on how art institutions can do better at representation, and features first-person narratives on transitioning. With approachable language and playful illustrations, LSTW promises a delightful and didactic read, so head over to Sampler and secure your copy.
In this issue:
— Astrology as a tool for community building, self-reflection and healing
— Journalist Mary Rogan reflects on life after coming out as a transgender male at 54
— Conqueering the Museum: How our institutions can do better at LGBTQ+ representation
— Ève Salvail is best known as a muse for Jean-Paul Gaultier, but fame was never her end game
— And a white-supremacist group recruits a teenager, resulting in a reckoning of her own internalised homophobia
