No Cosmo, Please



Published:

This letter is in response to Myca in Atlanta [Vol. 18 #4] and her thoughts on making CURVE “a Cosmo for Lesbians.” What is that about? This magazine has a lot to offer lesbians today. The last thing it needs to become is a skinny, fashion, barf-till-you-lose-those-pounds magazine. Granted, some women are femme and like that kind of stuff, but to completely change this magazine to focus on just them is crazy. CURVE has made sure to cover everything that is important to us and beyond—from the workplace to politics, from families to partners-wives and their rights, from health and fitness to what’s happening around town and the world. I don’t see a need to change it.
