gal-dem is a magazine (online and in print) where all of the content is produced by women and non-binary people of colour which launched in September 2015.
The aim of gal-dem is to open up our take on the world to a wider audience. We want people from all backgrounds to engage with the work we are doing. It’s no secret that the mainstream media doesn’t represent or reflect us, so we are doing it for ourselves.
gal-dem was founded by Liv Little who, frustrated with the lack of diversity at Bristol University, wanted to reach out to women of colour like herself. The team began to grow and we now have editors, contributors and illustrators who come from all walks of life. We are ready to provide you with thought-provoking content, eye-catching visuals and an abundance of giggles.
