Madeleine Gray is, first and foremost, a consumer of texts. It really doesn’t matter what the text is – she literally reads magazines cover to cover, including bad photo captions, because she has FOMO but about words.

She is a journalist, particularly interested in queer issues, intersectional feminism, and representations of both in novels and popular culture.

She has previously worked as Editor-in-Chief at The Beast magazine, as a staff writer at Lesbians on the Loose, and as a freelance journalist at various other publications. She just finished her Masters in Eng Lit (1900 – Present) at the University of Oxford, with Distinction, looking at feminist phenomenology in recent British and Irish fiction written by women.
