DIVA is a leading lesbian magazine in the United Kingdom, published monthly. It was launched in March 1994 by Millivres Ltd, under the editorship of Frances Williams [2] and is now published by Twin Media Group, which is owned by Silke Bader and Linda Riley. Silke Bader is also the publisher of Curve magazine in the USA and LOTL in Australia, and Linda Riley runs the European Diversity Awards and is the former publisher of g3 magazine in the UK.

The current editor is Carrie Lyell, who has held the position since May 2017, it includes many articles dedicated to lesbian and bisexual social issues, and candid interviews with gay icons and prominent lesbians alike. In November 2008, DIVA was published under the name "The Souvenir Issue" for the purpose of celebrating the 150th issue by including the cover pages of every issue that had been published since April 1994.[3] DIVA has a dating website which was launched in 2013 in partnership with Rocketware Ltd.

Inspired by the Everyday Sexism Project, former DIVA editor Jane Czyzselska launched the Everyday Lesbophobia campaign in 2013 to document instances of lesbophobia.[4]
