The Curve Foundation

In April 2021, Franco Stevens, along with a dynamic Advisory Council, launched The Curve Foundation. The Curve Foundation will spur active storytelling and cross-generational dialogue around the Curve Community by supporting journalism inspired by the tradition of Curve magazine, investing in the next generation of intersectional leaders, and bolstering existing community archives as a resource to ensure LGBTQ+ women’s culture and history can be known.

The Curve Foundation’s Mission

Empower lesbian, queer women, trans women, and non-binary people to share our culture and our stories, connect with each other, and raise visibility.

The Curve Foundation’s Vision

A renaissance of journalists inspired by the tradition of Curve will be actively telling community stories and engaging in cross-generational dialogue to connect and inspire and to provide and find information about our community’s culture and history.

As part of the foundation’s ongoing work, Franco has reacquired Curve magazine and donated it to the Foundation so it can leverage the brand and amplify the Foundation’s mission. Curve magazine is now a nonprofit project of The Curve Foundation.
