Gal-dem is a London-based title created by women and non-binary people of colour. With a double cover of Raveena Aurora and Nao, this issue explores secrets — the things that people of colour want to say about the world, but don’t always feel able to.


Secrets can be fun, necessary, toxic or a delicious combination. This edition features personal perspectives, indulging in guilty pleasures and sharing stories that women of colour have often struggled to say aloud.

  • The hidden histories of stolen art in UK galleries (inspired by Black Panther)
  • Interviews with Fatima, Paloma Elsesser and Travis Alabanza
  • An Afrocentric editorial by Glossier, based on Gal-dem’s favourite Mean Girls quote: “That’s why her hair is so big, it’s full of secrets”
