Katie is a disabled queer writer, creator, and activist who spends her days fighting online misogyny, hate, and disinfo and her evening playing with her dog, designing for her Etsy, reading 5 books at once, or collecting too many kinds of tea. Find her across social media at @imkatiereilly.
After a brief time writing about and working in the music industry, Katie became a full time activist, leading campaigns on online disinfo and extremism, climate change and pollution, Indigenous rights, corporate accountability, media representation and accountability, and gender equality. Her proudest moments as an activist include working alongside leaders at Standing Rock to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline, working on the massive Peoples Climate Marches, and collaborating with GLAAD to ban deadnaming and misgendering on TikTok.
Katie has been published in Teen Vogue and LGBTQ Nation.
