gal-dem Magazine

Like Mandem is a group of men, gal-dem is a group of girls.
gal-dem is all about showcasing the work of young women of colour.
Its a space where we are free to write about anything we like, it doesn’t have to be race and gender specific. It fills a gap which doesn’t currently exist, we are beating essentialist notions around what a woman of colour is or should be.

gal-dem is a creative magazine (online and in print) comprised of over 70 women of colour. Most of our team are based in the UK, but we do have a few farther afield, including the US and South America. The aim of gal-dem is to open up our take on the world to a wider audience.

We want people of different shapes, sizes, genders and ethnic backgrounds to engage with the work we are doing. It is no secret that the mainstream media doesn’t represent or reflect us, so we are doing it for was founded by Liv Little who, frustrated with the lack of diversity at her university, wanted to reach out to women of colour like herself; and gal-dem was born!
The team began to grow and we now have contributors who come from all walks of life. The gal-dem girl gang is here – and we are ready to provide you with thought-provoking content, eye-catching visuals and an abundance of giggles.We are always looking to welcome more fabulous females to the team; so, if you are interested or simply want to know more about us: please contact with how and why you want to get involved.
