Emily’s Team Pick

So this may or may not be one of the coolest team picks ever. I don’t want to tell you what it is because I want curiosity to make you click on it. Just know that if you like words, you’ll like this site.

Before you go! Autostraddle runs on the reader support of our A+ Members. If this article meant something to you today — if it informed you or made you smile or feel seen, will you consider joining A+ and supporting the people who make this indie queer media site possible?

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.

Emily has written 100 articles for us.


  1. I adopted the word “ovablastic.” I was going to make it a part of my new pick-up line. “Woman, you are ovablastically gorgeous.” But then I realized I’m taken, so I just said it (ok, fine, I emailed it) to my girlfriend instead. Her response: “yes honey, I want your babies too.”
