Join us on Saturday, December 1st from 7PM – 9:30PM at the Bureau of General Services-Queer Division in celebrating the launch of LSTW Issue 3!
Published annually, LSTW is an intimate exploration of lesbian communities across Canada. The bilingual print magazine, based in Montreal, Quebec, celebrates diverse and authentic queer voices from coast to coast to coast.
Meet founder & publisher Florence Gagnon and other members of the Lez Spread The Word team to discuss the creation of the magazine, and its third issue, which includes: An in-depth profile of Emmy-winning writer, producer and actor Lena Waithe. Other highlights include an investigation into conversion therapy in Canada today, a conversation between Muslim writers of color Fariha Róisín and Samra Habib, a photo essay about Mexico City Pride and a look at how virtual reality is queering the porn industry.
The 230-page magazine is the result of efforts by more than 20 women keen to bring about positive change. Working from a desire to broaden access to LGBTQ+ communities, lstw honors role models, promotes diversity and shines a spotlight on lesbian culture in a new way.
