Lyra Magazine Issue 1 is available now on loremnotipsum.com. The Lust Issue features articles by exceptional artists and writers, including the poet and activist Joumana Haddad, writing about the sexualisation of women in Lebanon; the philosophers Federico Campagna and Simon Blackburn with two discussions of lust; the academic Nikki van der Gaag on men and feminism. Issue 1 features the poet Trisha Low on Chantal Akerman; interviews with Molly Parkin, Irma Kurtz and the founder of Sh! Woman’s Store Ky Holden; erotica by Anais Nin; and photography by Spencer Tunick, Sasha Kurmaz, Anthony Lycett, Lukasz Wierzbowski.
The first issue of London-based women’s magazine Lyra features a stunning front cover. There’s so many new women’s publications springing up from the UK capital at the moment – after Riposte, there’s been Ladybeard, Orlando, and Another Gaze to name a few – so it’s important to look at how Lyra stands out from the crowd. — MagCulture
