Griffin Wynne


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. They try to make their work as accessible and representational as possible and hope to empower women/AFAB/femme/queer/trans people. (They also hope to burn softboys and make obscure ‘90s pop culture references.) Griffin is a queer non-binary artist and writer currently living in Philadelphia, PA, by way of Los Angeles, CA, and Swampscott, MA. Their work has appeared in Cosmopolitan, Bustle, Teen Vogue, She Shreds, Crybaby Zine, and Razorcake Mag. They received their bachelor's in religious studies from Occidental College where they spent an entire semester in a monastery ordained as a literal nun. (So they’re only half-kidding when they say dating today makes them consider joining a convent.) Though they’re candid and critical about the “DIY scene” (and frankly anyone who says the phrase: “the DIY scene”) Griffin got their start writing for various punk zines and independent presses. 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, gold jewelry, dollar oysters, fresh flowers, and documentaries about cults. They’re a Capricorn King, a genderless cowgirl, and a '70s mama who is always down for plain seltzer, karaoke, and Vanderpump Rules. Griffin uses they/them pronouns and has the same birthday as Kyle Richards. You can follow them on Twitter and Instagram at @griffinwynne or hop over to Feel free to send them your hot wing recipes and birth charts, or just to say hi!
