She is the author of Bad Feminist and Hunger as well as works of fiction including The World of Wakanda for Marvel.

In 2015, Gay was the recipient of the PEN America Freedom to Write Award for demonstrating ‘exceptional courage in the defense of free expression.’ She has contributed to numerous publications, and her fiction has been widely anthologised.

gal-dem magazine launched in September 2015, and all of the content is produced by women and non-binary people of colour.

Gay’s most recent book, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, captures the experiences, traumas and attitudes which have shaped Gay’s changing relationship with her body and what they reveal about society as a whole. Her previous book, Bad Feminist, became a New York Times bestseller, exposing the inequalities of the present with insight and piercing wit.
