Lez Spread the Word is launching the first issue of its bilingual print magazine. A 230-page annual created by and for queer women, the pan-Canadian publication will resonate throughout the country and beyond its borders.
In a bid to offer content that is at once in-depth, innovative and intimate, LSTW has gone all in with a unique project for the LGBTQ+ community. Self-financed, the magazine is the result of efforts by more than 20 women keen to bring about change.
Working from the principle that it is more than necessary to broaden access to LGBTQ+ communities and give them more visibility, LSTW aims to celebrate Canadian role models, promote diversity and shine a spotlight on lesbian culture in a way that has never been seen before.
The Juno-winning, Grammy-nominated indie-pop duo Tegan and Sara is featured on the magazine’s front and back covers. Last April, the LSTW team travelled to Los Angeles for an interview and photo shoot with the sisters.
Other highlights of the magazine include interviews with Bernie Houde (Lesbians on Ecstasy), the former prime minister of Iceland Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir, Member of the National Assembly of Québec Manon Massé, graphic novelist Diane Obomsawin, Paralympian Viviane Forest, French designer Matali Crasset and many more.
