Writer, co-creator, and co-publisher of Tracy Queen
Lynsey G (She/They) started writing young and never stopped. Her primary focus is in the oddly congruent corners of adult entertainment, gender issues, and feminism. As a DVD reviewer and set copy writer for numerous adult magazines, she got an eyeful of smut and a mind full of questions, which she parlayed into a column at McSweeney’s Internet Tendency. She then spent three years as the editor-in-chief of the online adult industry magazine WHACK! There, under the name Miss Lagsalot, she conducted dozens of interviews with adult stars and wrote her sparkly little heart out. During this time she also curated a video art exhibition at apexart in New York City featuring four short films she directed and produced, won a 2013 Feminist P*rn Award for one of those films, and glammed it up with The New York City Poetry Brothel. She is the author of the IPPY Award–winning memoir Watching Porn: And Other Confessions of an Adult Entertainment Journalist. She has published fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry in print and online at outlets like Rolling Stone, Glamour, Playboy, Men’s Health, MEL Magazine, Bitch, Bust Magazine, and others. These days she works as a freelance copyeditor and journalist while also creating Tracy Queen, blogging at her website, and publishing comics and more at Oneshi Press.
