Autostraddle

I’m a senior editor at Autostraddle, a forward-thinking, feminist online magazine for queer women that garners 3 million views and 700,000+ unique visitors a month. At Autostraddle, I foster women of color voices, help manage freelance writers, impact editorial direction and write about pop culture, politics and activism.
