American writer, professor, editor, commentator, and the author of The New York Times best-selling essay collection Bad Feminist (2014), as well as the short story collection Ayiti (2011), the novel An Untamed State (2014), the short story collection Difficult Women (2017), and the memoir Hunger (2017).
Gay is an associate professor of English at Purdue University, contributing opinion writer at The New York Times, founder of Tiny Hardcore Press, essays editor for The Rumpus, and co-editor of PANK, a nonprofit literary arts collective.
Much of Gay's written work deals with the analysis and deconstruction of feminist and racial issues through the lens of her personal experiences with race, gender identity, and sexuality.
Sy Scholfield quotes from Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay (Hachette UK, 2017): "[in] my baby album ... There are two black imprints of my baby feet with the words “Girl Gay” written above them. I was born at 7:48 in the morning ... There was a record of my birth in the Omaha World-Herald, printed on October 28, 1974, thirteen days after my birthday."
