Dear readers,

As Black History Month comes to a close, here at Interrobang, we are continuing the conversation with our Diversity issue.

Discussions of equality, diversity, and inclusion don’t begin and end with the month of February. In fact, it is imperative that we keep these conversations going year round, in order to constantly strive for better representation and equal opportunity for all.

Listen live on

In this issue, our featured content is sure to spark these conversations. Ben Harrietha explores queer representation in the horror film genre, meanwhile Justin Koehler looks at how Hollywood’s diversity efforts have improved and faltered over time. Meanwhile, our cover, designed by Nina Hepplewhite, pays homage to people living with disabilities, while a feature from Dee-Dee Samuels outlines disability rights in Ontario.

If all that weren’t enough, Kate Otterbein and Zoë King both take a look at diversity in London itself, focusing on London’s city council and London’s population, respectively.

Diversity is more than just a buzzword. Here at Interrobang, it is the lifeblood of our publication. Our team of writers and designers represents people of various ages, races, abilities, and backgrounds. We hope that this issue gives you a glimpse inside the discussions we have in our newsroom every day, and shines a lot on the many ways you can support diversity and inclusion efforts in your own lives.
