BY ELLA GAUCI
Hello DIVAs! Welcome to another DIVA Friday Round Up where we bring you some of the hottest new queer shows, music, and films that have been released this week. Are you ready to jump in with us?
MUSIC: Emeli Sandé – How Were We To Know
National treasure Emeli Sandé has finally released her hotly anticipated new album How Were We To Know! The fifth studio album from this iconic singer follows the trials and tribulations of love in all its forms and aims to leave every listener with a sense of hope.
We caught up with the star to find out all about this new album in our December/January issue which you can preorder now: https://www.divadirect.info/divadecember-january-2024-pre-order/!
FILM: The Disappearance Of Shere Hite
Directed by Nicole Newnham, The Disappearance Of Shere Hite follows the life of American-born German sex educator and feminist Shere Hite. The renowned reporter focused her work largely on female sexuality, and her 1976 bestselling book, The Hite Report, centred women’s pleasure at the forefront of the quest for women’s liberation. Hite was also focused on connecting feminism with LGBTQIA rights.
MUSIC: Dolly Parton – Rockstar
Icon Dolly Parton is back with her new album Rockstar. Her forty-ninth solo album features collaborations with stars like Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. Dolly Parton has been a firm ally of the LGBTQIA community throughout her career, making her a fan favourite with the queer community.
TV: A Murder At The End Of The World
Starring non-binary icon Emma Corrin, A Murder At The End Of The World is a new mini-series with a new kind of detective at its centre – a Gen Z amateur sleuth and tech-savvy queer hacker named Darby Hart (Emma Corrin). It’s perfect if you’re looking for something to binge-watch this weekend.
