Q // FOUNDER

Sarah Q is a full-time doctor, occasional writer and perpetually The Most ™. She is inspired by drag, glamour, comedy, satire, calling out white nonsense and the concept of a genuinely good night’s sleep. When not hard at work, you can find her either at home in pyjamas binge eating Pringles and binge watching Drag Race, or out on the town at 5am wearing heels and (faux) fur and an abundance of sparkles. (There is no in-between.)

Non-fiction forays from him focus on queer culture and what it means to be an LGBTQ+ person living in the present day.
