Hi, I’m Erica Lenti.

🙋🏻‍♀️ I’m a writer and editor in Toronto, Canada. I’m currently the senior editor, politics & identities at Xtra, Canada’s LGBTQ2S+ 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 The Outline. In 2021, I participated in the Banff Centre’s Literary Journalism Program. Both my writing and editing have landed me several honours at the National Magazine Awards and Digital Publishing Awards.

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