Amelia Abraham is a London-based journalist and author. She has worked as an editor at both VICE and Dazed, and writes for The Guardian, Vogue, and other titles. Her first book, Queer Intentions: A (Personal) Journey Through LGBTQ+ Culture, was published by Picador in 2019. A first-person exploration of the mainstreaming of queer culture, Amelia goes to Britain’s first same-sex wedding, travels to RuPaul’s DragCon in LA, parties at Pride parades across Europe, and investigates the violence experienced by Trans people in New York City. Munroe Bergdorf described it as “an intersectional and insightful journey through the nuances of the queer experience.” Amelia’s second book, We Can Do Better Than This, is an edited anthology, asking queer pop stars, performers, academics, and activists the question: “If you could change something to make life better for LGBTQ+ people, what would it be?” The result is a definitive and global guide to queer activism. Outside of writing and editing, Amelia curates and speaks at events usually revolving around LGBTQ+ rights or queer culture. In 2018, she gave a TEDx Talk called “Why Feminists Should Support Transgender Rights.” She wants to write the greatest lesbian rom-com of all time, but hasn’t got round to it yet.
