👋 Hi, I’m Erica Lenti.

I'm a writer and editor in Toronto, Canada. I'm currently a senior editor at Xtra, Canada’s LGBTQ2 online magazine.

I was formerly the editor of This Magazine, the deputy editor of Torontoist, and an editorial fellow at The Walrus. My work has also appeared in Toronto Life, Reader’s Digest Canada, The Globe and Mail, Hazlitt, and Broadview. Both my writing and editing have landed me several honours at the National Magazine Awards.

I love telling stories about queer communities, party politics, the internet, mental health, and my one-eyed dog.
