Writing

I write about art and design, and genderqueer experiences navigating fashion and beauty. A former editor at Refinery29, my work has appeared in Vogue, Esquire, Racked, Vice, Teen Vogue, Architectural Digest and more. I also edit my own LGBTQ+ indie zine, Cakeboy, available at bookstores worldwide.
