There are so many inspiring creatives within the LGBTQI community who are actively changing the world around them through their work. As we prepare for the year ahead, we wanted to check in with some of our favourites. Our conversations with them filled us with hope and we’re sure they’ll put a fire in your belly.

Here’s your taster for what they said:

Cherrelle Skeete on tokenism…

“We feel as if there can only be one of us. Actually, no, there’s space for all of us.”

Shon Faye on her gamechanging book…

“The book argues for coalition between different groups to start tackling the wider problems that face us all.”

Daisy Jones on writing All The Things She Said…

“For me to write an accurate representation of what sapphic culture is today, then it has to be inclusive.”
