Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

For the last few years,, an online Halloween costume retailer also popular with the Burning Man set, has gifted The Frisky staff with the costumes of our choosing, so I’m intimately aware of their ability to sex-ify every possible person, place or thing imaginable.

Gay Priest Fired For Coming Out Right Before Vatican Assembly On Family, Marriage & Same-Sex Relationships

One person who probably doesn’t refer to Pope Francis as “Cool Pope” like so many have called the notoriously less-bigoted-than-usual Catholic Church figurehead?
