Tonight’s interviewee, Jacquie Lawrence

Jacquie Lawrence is a television producer, writer, director and Commissioning Editor with a hugely successful career. In her role as Commissioning Editor at Channel 4, she was in charge of the LGBTQI content such as Dyke TV and Queer Street, both of which garnered millions of viewers.

In 2015, Jacquie’s first novel Different For Girls was an indie publishing smash hit and nominated for a Polari Prize and a DIVA Literary Festival Prize. It was adapted for the screen just two years later and has now been seen in nearly 60 countries! 

Launched as a way of bringing the lez/bi community closer together with everything that’s happening in the world right now, the Facebook-based, digital hangout DIVA Community has grown to a membership of 6,000 women and allies, hailing from all around the globe. Pretty impressive, eh? So we thought it’s time to give back to you wonderful lot.
