Our August cover star talks candidly about queer representation, #Win4Wynonna and her own sexuality

INTERVIEW BY ROXY BOURDILLON, PHOTOGRAPHY BY YVES BRIGHT, STYLING BY ALEX CLOUGH, HAIR AND MAKE-UP BY NIKKI NOUVELLE

In our brand new issue, DIVA deputy ed Roxy Bourdillon has a DMC with Wynonna Earp star and one half of #WayHaught, Kat Barrell. Believe us when we say this interview is seriously juicy. Here’s a cheeky snippet, because after the incredible, triumphant #FightForWynonna, you Earpers sure deserve it.

Kat on…

LGBTQI representation

“Nicole makes queer women feel seen. What more can you ask for? That’s the most beautiful thing a character can do.”

Her personal journey with mental health

“It’s ok to show vulnerability. It’s not a weakness to be open with people. It is nothing to be ashamed of.”

#Win4Wynonna

“There were a few brief moments when I thought we would lose the show, but Wynonna Earp always beats the odds.”

PLUS Kat opens up about her own sexuality.
