Without change, the world wouldn’t move forward, learning and hopefully improving as it goes. The arrival of this issue coincides with London Pride, the capital’s annual celebration of LGBT+ rights and culture. If anything proves the power of positive change, it is this. Hearst – the company that publishes ELLE Decoration – will be marching in the parade on 6 July and I, along with my colleagues, will be there waving banners and shouting myself hoarse.

This year’s event is even more powerful, as it marks the fifty-year anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York, where violent protests erupted in the face of police brutality and acted as a catalyst for the modern fight for LGBT+ rights. While acceptance and tolerance have come a long way since then, there is still much to be done. Last month, two women were brutally attacked on a London bus simply because of their sexuality, and a recent report by The Guardian newspaper outlined that homophobic and transphobic hate crimes in England and Wales have more than doubled in the past five years. These are two facts that have particular resonance for me.
