Welcome to the first edition of IOL Lifestyle’s Queer+ digital magazine. To kick off, we took a very conscious decision to tackle gender in all its glorious shades and hues. These shades and hues can often be very complex for many, so this edition aims to educate everyone, and create constructive conversations around gender. We are living in a time where gender has become a keypoint, both within and outside of the LGBTQIA+ community, and we sincerely hope that this magazine will give you a better understanding of gender as a social construct. This is a view into the world of those who are outside of the gender binary … where you will see how they are able to live and thrive.
