Eleanor Noyce

Eleanor Noyce is an East London-based freelance journalist covering LGBTQI issues, sex and relationships and disability. She graduated from the University of Leeds in 2021, having received a 2:1 in BA Politics. Here, she specialised in gender politics and feminist theory, having written her undergraduate dissertation on the politics of British drag.

She is currently the Editorial Assistant at DIVA Magazine, the leading publication for LGBTQI women and non-binary people, where she chiefly covers entertainment and lifestyle. At DIVA, she is improving bisexuality and disability representation, having interviewed pertinent names in the LGBTQI world from Michelle Visage (RuPaul’s Drag Race) to Ariana DeBose (West Side Story, The Prom).

Eleanor has by-lines in The Independent, Metro, i-D, Refinery29, Stylist, Giddy, Tribune and more, and has further appeared on BBC Radio 5 Live and on podDIVA. She also freelances as a Copywriter and Event Executive, having assisted with the European Diversity Awards, British Diversity Awards, Global Diversity List, and Rainbow Honours.

In her spare time, Eleanor enjoys running and reading, and loves attending gigs and exhibitions across London. She has run 5Ks and 10Ks, and is currently training for the Hackney Half Marathon. She lives with type one diabetes and ADHD, both of which are experiences that inform her work on disability. She is passionate about furthering positive discourse on neurodiversity and gender, particularly regarding the underdiagnosis of ADHD in women and biases in scientific approaches which impede gender-informed research on neurodiversity.
