LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
When we were strategising about the launch of Bustle UK in early 2018, there was one thing I was adamant about: I wanted the site to focus on celebrating women and non-binary people from all over the UK, telling their stories not only without judgement, but with pride. That is the driving force behind Bustle UK's first digital package, The Great British Beauty Issue. We are done with the narratives forced on us about who we are; these are the the stories we choose to tell about ourselves.
