Liv little founded gal-dem magazine, a UK-based digital publication launched by and for women and non-binary people of colour, whilst she was in her last year of university.
Liv says she started gal-dem “as a direct response to a feeling of severe isolation and hopelessness that often comes with being the only person of colour in a room.”
“As a black student, sitting in lectures and seminars and being asked to speak on behalf of all marginalised voices amidst a sea of white privilege, it became evident that if the rooms weren’t going to change, it was time to build my own.”
Originally a zine, gal-dem has gone from strength to strength, securing investment and sponsorship from the likes of Glossier and partnerships with Penguin Random House and The Guardian.
Little was a politics and sociology student at the University of Bristol and has worked for organisations such as Women for Refugee Women.Tags: LGBTQ+
