Non-Academic Editorial Experience
I spent four years as a Contributing Editor and Writer for Autostraddle.com, which is "world’s most popular lesbian website, with over one million unique visitors and 3.5 million views per month." It is a trans- and non-binary-friendly website and the 2015 GLAAD Award Winner for Outstanding Website.
