Vada Magazine has revealed its first-ever digital cover, featuring author Laura Kay.
The spring cover forms part of a series of digital covers to be published across the year, spotlighting prominent and emerging voices from the LGBTQ+ community.
For our inaugural cover, Laura Kay sat down with Vada to discuss her latest book Tell Me Everything, about a queer therapist living in Brighton. Photographed by JLT, she spoke of the importance of queer representation in fiction, why she decided it was time to write about shame, and the importance of helping fellow LGBTQ+ writers break into the publishing world.
Kay is an author and journalist, who lives in East London. She was chosen as one of ten mentees on the Penguin Random House WriteNow programme in 2018, publishing her first novel The Split in 2021 with Quercus. Tell Me Everything is her second novel, and will be published at the end of May.
Each cover will be released alongside an exclusive interview with an author, artist or creative, who is making a positive contribution to the wider LGBTQ+ community. With an audience of 60,000 average monthly readers, the introduction of digital covers is yet another opportunity for Vada to grow and showcase key voices and themes from within our community.
