Bio

Griffin Wynne is a sex and dating writer at Elite Daily. They write about the role of technology and social media in relationships, sexual health, gender and sexuality, and astrology.

Their work has appeared in Cosmopolitan, Bustle, She Shreds, Crybaby Zine, and Razorcake Mag. They are passionate about music and art made by POC and queer/trans people and are dedicated to creating and supporting media that is representational and progressive. When they’re not discussing dating in the ~digital era~ or crying to the Dixie Chicks, Griffin enjoys camping, reading, used clothes, and documentaries about cults. They’re a Capricorn King, a genderless cowgirl, and a '70s mama who is always down for plain seltzer, face masks, and wearing too many gold necklaces at the same time. Griffin uses they/them pronouns and has the same birthday as Kyle Richards. Feel free to send them your hot wing recipes and birth charts, or just to say hi! griffinwynne@gmail.com
