This week’s debrief also features Pidgeon Pagonis and K.Flay 


DIVAs, we need to sit down. This week has been busy to say the least! Every day it feels like we’re getting bombarded with new talent, new shows, and new things to get excited about. Don’t worry if you’ve not been able to get up to speed yet, we’ve got you covered. 

Here is our DIVA Friday Round Up of all the queer goodness that came out this week! 

FILM: Bad Things

Is anyone else just a little bit obsessed with Hari Nef after watching the Barbie movie? Well, you’re in luck, because she’s starring in a brand new horror film Bad Things which comes out today! The film centres around a girls’ trip that just happens to go a little bit wrong. The film is screaming sapphic suspense… 

BOOK: Thin Skin by Jenn Shapland 

Highlighted as a Goodreads Most Anticipated Book, Thin Skin by Jenn Shapland is a collection of essays which question everything from nuclear war to queerness to womanhood. It’s a must-read this year, and it came out on 15 August. Go get your copy now. 

MUSIC: Snow Angel – Reneé Rapp 

Snow Angel is finally here! While we are still mourning the loss of our beloved Leighton, we’re super excited to listen to Reneé’s new album. Earlier this year she released the titular track, and we cannot get enough of her beautiful voice. Go stream the album now! 

BOOK: Nobody Needs To Know by Pidgeon Pagonis

Intersex activist Pidgeon Pagonis has just released their powerful and candid memoir Nobody Needs To Know. The story follows Pidgeon’s life as they realise that they had been born intersex but were raised as a girl. It’s a story of defying binaries and should be on every bookshelf. 

MUSIC: Irish Goodbye – K.Flay and Piece The Veil

Need a good reason to rock out? K.Flay has you covered. She’s just released one of the tracks from her upcoming album MONO called Irish Goodbye which features the thrashing guitars of the iconic rock band Pierce The Veil. The queer icon will also be featured in our next issue so keep your eyes peeled…
