Franco remembers Essence editor Linda Villarosa on Deneuve’s cover in 1993. “We were enamored with the fact that she was a strong African American lesbian at the helm of a magazine. And she’s smokin’ hot!”

Rachel Pepper brought so many stories of the early days of Deneuve magazine to AHEAD OF THE CURVE.

Franco remembers the second Deneuve cover. “Two dancers from SF straddling each other on a motorcycle with a gay flag in the background. If that doesn’t say lesbian I don’t know what does!”
