With Halloween over, we can now move away from spooky skeletons and scary films into the cosy warmth of winter. This week saw a plethora of amazing queer music, films, and TV shows come out – here are some of our top picks.
Join us on this week’s DIVA Friday Round-Up to get all the newest and hottest releases!
MUSIC: SOFT LAD – GIVE IT A GO
Sophie Galpin is here with her EP album Give It A Go. The lesbian pop singer is here to remind everyone that it is never too late to try. Having been in bands since she was 14, this new EP is an exploration of her own sound, experiences, and life. Keep your eyes peeled for our December/January issue where we sat down with the singer herself…
It’s here! After its cinematic release, Nyad is now officially on Netflix and we could not be more excited. Starring Annette Bening and Jodie Foster, Nyad tells the story of legendary LGBTQIA swimmer Diana Nyad who sets out to do the impossible: swim from Cuba to Florida at the age of 60.
MUSIC: Liza Anne – Utopian
Non-binary gay artist Liza Anne is ready to grace your ears with their queer album Utopian! The American Rock musician is known for tracks like I Love You, But I Need Another Year and 1,000 Years. Liza has described this new album as being a space for healing and euphoria, so we can’t wait to listen to the full tracklist.
TV: The Gilded Age season two
Cynthia Nixon is back as Ada Brook in this new season of queer-favourite show The Gilded Age. This American historical drama has had queer fans flocking to it since its release in 2022. Set in 1882, this show follows the excitement, bustle, and secrets that make up society.
