Allie Fasanella

Allie is a Chicago-based freelance writer with a tendency to indulge in too much TV (dark fam dramedies are her favorite), edibles, and egg rolls. When she’s not cozied up on the couch, you can find her traveling and exploring whenever she can.

Identifying as a proud fat, queer lesbian with a love of history, she also can’t get enough gay ephemera and is always in search of the perfect pair of vintage jeans.

In addition to Bustle, her work has appeared in Teen Vogue, Allure, The Coveteur, and The Cut.
