Girls Like Us (GLU) magazine was founded by Jessica Gysel and Kathrin Hero in 2005.

It was created as an antidote to the vanilla representation of contemporary lesbian culture: where's the fun, the wink, the subversiveness and the class? The magazine is made in Amsterdam, published in New York and available in the bigger cities worldwide.
