The magazine of the photo-essay
May 2018 issue
Dear Shirley
by Hinda Schuman
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine.  Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
Dear Shirley is a first-person saga of love and loss captured over more than four decades. The photographs and text contained in this diaristic account take an unflinching look at the dissolution of two marriages: Schuman’s marriage of 10 years to Jeremy, and of 27 years to Susan. “Dear Shirley is about falling in love and the promise and excitement of finding someone to spend my life with and watching it fall apart. I see 2018 as the right time for a conversation about the hopes for queer marriages and the risks entailed.”
Dear Shirley, I’ve gone from a married woman to a sexual minority in one embrace. Love, Hinda
