Feminine Moments' newsletter - Pride 2020

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

While we are waiting for our local cultural lives to RE-OPEN or the next Pride Zoom conference live video session to start... I send you the Pride issue of Feminine Moments' newsletter. This month I am happy to introduce you to artist and photographer Lill-Ann Chepstow-Lusty who is living and working in Oslo, Norway. See the feature (below) about her upcomming 'Log Lady Lusty' publication, depicting the life and politics of a feminist rebel, questioning ethnicity, gender, class, sexual orientation… and COVID-19.
