Today, I’m in conversation with Christania, the editor and chief of queer Black online magazine AZ Mag. Together with a small group of queer Black women, Christania set up AZ mag because she didn’t see herself reflected in mainstream LGBTQ media. AZ Mag is a triumph and what Christania has helped create is a much-needed and remarkable platform that is bringing together the queer Black community in the UK.

Like so many of us, though, this isn’t the only thing she does. Christania is launching Qmmunity Pod, a podcast exploring the past, present and future of the LGBTQ community. Today, we discuss her thoughts on the damaging effects of comparing ourselves to others, how she’s breaking free from self-policing, what she’s learned building her own business and what she tells herself everyday.
