An initialism for Lez Spread the Word, LSTW is the magazine of Canadian lesbian culture. It's presented in both English and French-language, with both languages sitting alongside each other throughout.
Issue six is their anniversary edition, celebrating 10 years and, as they write in their editor's note ‘a decade of culture, promising projects, improvised encounters, dreams, inspiring horizons, sleepless nights and so many cardboard boxes.’

(As we are, catch shop manager Danielle's piece on page 166). Now only one question remains, which cover will you choose?
