When Hannah was first appointed to the role nearly four years ago, many questioned how a young, straight woman would be able to capture the mood and views of the increasingly disparate GLBT-WXYZ community. But Hannah achieved what many thought was unthinkable, and the magazine went from strength to strength. She also introduced us to one of her greatest passions — roller derby — a sport which we think should trump rugby as our national sport.
We too were initially skeptical, but Hannah’s commitment to queer issues, and effort in producing an increasingly high-quality magazine have been second to none. And we’re not just saying this because she put us on the cover twice!
Hannah moves on to a position at Dish magazine. Her last day with express is on 7 September.
Haere ra Hannah, you’ve left some very big shoes to follow!
