Listen on

Episode notes

The festive Golden one! With England's Lioness Beth Mead aka The Golden Boot on the cover.

And many a tortured football metaphor between the sheets!

Rachel Shelley (aka Helena in The L Word) discusses the latest issue of DIVA magazine with Her Royal DIVA-ness Roxy Bourdillon. Nominated for Editor of the Year 2022 by the British Society of Magazine Editors, Roxy is also a sparkly, self-proclaimed Lesbian Christmas Cliche. Hear her baubles bouncing.

Roxy gives a personal account of the giggly highs of making your favourite LGBTQIA+ gorgeous glossy mag, from the inside looking out.

Including an exclusive extract from Beth Mead's new book My Journey to Glory, celebrating the Queer Festive film line up of 2020 and demanding more for Christmas 2023!

Plus: Bristol Butch Bar, comedian Zoe Lyons and what's really happening in Qatar for the FIFA World Cup.

Plus an exclusive Beyond Borders feature starring you, the DIVA listener. Wherever You Are in the World.

This month: Jude from Etretat, in Normandy, France. Known as the "cradle of Impressionism".

Jude writes Sapphic Fiction reviews - find out more here: Jude In The Stars and here: Lez Review Books
