Love, fear, freedom

Photo courtesy Zoey Grossman Pop artist Marina on art, activism and gay fandom Even though Marina Diamandis cut herself loose from pop music after 2015’s FROOT to find the version of herself she lost to an industry touting artifice, the truth is, she’d been feeling that way for a while. During the promotional cycle for her 2012 album Electra Heart, the Welsh artist, who then went by the handle Marina and the Diamonds (she has since simplified her name — and image — to just Marina) was already...
