In this episode of Women Wanting Women I interview Merryn Johns, the editor-in-chief of Curve magazine.
Curve is a lifestyle brand.
But from their perspective, lifestyles are, by nature, political.
The goal is to point towards an ideal and help create a vision of what it means, as LGBTQ+ women, to live our best lives.
Their purpose is to be a window that shows us, as queer women, what living our best lives can look like, while encouraging us to reach for it.
Curve’s role is to hold a space that gets continually filled with images and stories that reinforce our identities and our culture as we’re making it together as LGBTQ+ women. That’s what Merryn Johns believes her mission is as the editor-in-chief of Curve magazine.
Readers of Curve magazine are mostly successful, ambitious women between the ages of 25-55 who are professional, own their own homes, have graduate degrees and are either in partnership or seeking partnership…
I invited Merryn Johns on the podcast because I wanted to learn more about these women and about what Merryn has learned from her experiences creating content for this community.
