Hosted by Saski and Char Bailey, The DIVA Interviews will link up with LGBTQI legends weekly


Following the success of The Riley Interviews during lockdown, DIVA has now launched The DIVA Interviews – a space for weekly exclusive chats with some our lovely friends and supporters. 

Join us in the Facebook DIVA Community every Tuesday at 8pm for LGBTQI life chats with your favourite celebs and the chance to fire your questions at our iconic interviewees. Grab a cup of tea and settle in for exciting chats and plenty of laughs. 

Launched as a way of bringing the lez/bi community closer together with everything that’s happening in the world right now, the Facebook-based, digital hangout DIVA Community has grown to a membership of almost 8,000 women and allies, hailing from all around the globe.
