Katie Herzog Personal Info
Katie Herzog rose in popularity, ironically, after readers of the now-defunct The Stranger tried to cancel her. In 2017, she wrote an article for the Stranger investigating the phenomena of Transgender who decide to detransition.
Some readers responded in dramatic fashion. After public burnings of her article in the public square, Katie found herself exiled from Seattle’s gay scene. Today, you can see scribbles of “Katie Herzog is a transphobe” in various Seattle enclaves, especially in Capitol Hill.
Today, Katie Co-hosts on Blocked and Reported with Jesse Singal where they “attempt to extract kernels of meaning and humanity from a landscape of endless raging dumpster fires. (And sometimes they talk about other stuff, too.).” She is also an active contributor to Grist.org, Salon, the Guardian, and Vox.
Her wife is a nurse and she has a dog name Moose.
