We couldn’t think of a better cover star for our queer joy January issue. What a way to kick off the New Year!
INTERVIEW BY ROXY BOURDILLON, IMAGE BY JIKSAW
In this exclusive heart-to-heart, the northern comedian opens up about dating, coming out and why being a proud, disabled lesbian brings her so much queer joy. Straight away our editor Roxy realises that Rosie has mastered the art of Zoom flirting, so reader, prepare to fall even more in love with Rosie Jones.
Here is your cheeky teaser:
Realising she was gay
“I kissed her. That one kiss with a girl made me go, ‘Oh, this is how you’re meant to feel when you kiss someone.'”
“If I can help one person be their true self, I’ll be happy.”
The importance of queer disabled visibility
“I remember literally googling, ‘Can you be disabled and gay?’ So when I got a platform, it was so important
to talk about going on dates and having my heart broken and being a dickhead to other girls”
