Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

Feminine Moments presents three queer feminist artists: Lena Rosa Händle (Austria/Germany), Roxana Halls (UK) and Sarah Jane Moon (UK/NZ). Enjoy their art works at the website - see links below.

My open call for materials about lesbian and queer feminist art is still running; I invite you to share your art projects with me and Feminine Moments' readers. Feel free to send your promotional materials or proposal for an article to me (email below) or submit your artist statement via the submission page at Feminine Moments.
