About the author

Liv Little is a curator, audio producer, filmmaker and the editor-in-chief of gal-dem, a fledgling media empire ran exclusively by women and non-binary people of colour. Born and raised in South East London, Little has written for The GuardianWonderland Magazine and gal-dem on a range of topics – from women seeking asylum in the UK, to interviews with women breaking down barriers in politics and the arts. She’s also produced an audio documentary for the Migration Museum on their A Mile In My Shoes project and has spent a year and a half working in television, most recently producing a short film on colourism for BBC Three, in addition to developing her first scripted comedy pilot.

As founding Editor-in-Chief of gal-dem, an online and print magazine that also hosts and curates talks, events and workshops, both Little and gal-dem aim to empower and support the creative work of young women of colour through breaking down tired stereotypes, promoting their work and changing the narrative of discussions in a whitewashed media environment.

Liv is currently working on her first book.
