May has been an exciting month for the FG Magazine as we are in the midst of welcoming new additions to our team that are now better placed to serve our readership. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to our writers and readers for their passion, patience and contributions over the past couple of months; we have had an amazing show of support. Although the community is spread around the globe, we have really felt how everyone has pulled together to make the Magazine better and we are excited to see what the coming months have in store.
This month in the FG magazine we celebrate diversity and gave the FG team free reign to cover the most interesting stories they had come across. The result is another fantastic collection of fascinating articles from the worlds of art, fashion, science, theatre and fine dining from all four corners of the globe.
In this month’s issue…
