gal-dem is a creative collective and magazine (online and in print) comprised of over 70 women and non-binary people of colour.

Most of our team are based in the UK, but we do have a few farther afield, including the US and South America. The aim of gal-dem is to open up our take on the world to a wider audience. We want people from all backgrounds to engage with the work we are doing. It’s no secret that the mainstream media doesn’t represent or reflect us, so we are doing it for ourselves.

gal-dem was founded by Liv Little who, frustrated with the lack of diversity at her university, wanted to reach out to women of colour like herself; and gal-dem was born! The team began to grow and we now have contributors who come from all walks of life. The gal-dem team is here – and we are ready to provide you with thought-provoking content, eye-catching visuals and an abundance of giggles.

We are always looking to welcome more wonderful women of colour to the team; so, if you are interested or simply want to know more about us please contact with how and why you want to get involved.
