In April 2010, Diamond decided to embark on a mission to fill a need in the queer feminist community – by creating the queer feminist sex magazine, Salacious. Salacious is set apart from its peers by its focus on illustration, high art, and stunning visuals. Salacious Magazine is now an international project, sporting over 90 contributors and an infinite number of supporters.
When she first began Salacious, Diamond hadn’t ever opened a book layout program – Salacious is what enabled her, and her editorial board, to learn how to make a magazine from start to finish, and many contributors credit the magazine as their break into the publishing world.
