Diva Magazine's Fat Issue


I am ecstatic that this October's issue of Europe's #1 Lesbian Magazine, DIVA, is deemed "The Fat Issue". Unlike Glamour, DIVA features actual fat (size 28) models and discusses fat positive topics like Health At Every Size. From fashion to fatphobia, this issue seemingly covers it all. I read the first few pages online (that's all I could view without paying) and I gotta admit, I'm impressed so far. With enticing titles like the ones pictured below, I am seriously considering shelling out the cash to read these articles!

  2. I'm not familiar with Diva, but the presence of "the Fat issue" makes me wonder if every other issue is, like most women's magazines, the "why you suck if you're not thin" issue.

  4. As another lesbian lover of Diva, I'm ecstatic this came out. They've always had the odd fat model put in the magazine, and varieties of different looking women, including their anniversary issue which had women of all sizes posing naked on their front cover and a plus size lady in the last issue's fashion pages. My straight friends read it whenever they come over and they get so jealous that other straight magazines don't celebrate women as they do.
