Mike McGinty

Mike McGinty writes humorous personal essays and fiction. His work has appeared online at Gay.com, PlanetOut, Outsports, Velvet Mafia, Silicon Mom, Suspect Thoughts, and NewYorkQNews. He has also contributed to American Magazine, Whispers from Heaven, San Francisco Bride, and Bookmarks Magazine, as well as the Lambda Literary Award-winning anthology I Do/I Don't: Queers on Marriage. His essay, "Peristalsis," is included in the anthology From Boys to Men: Gay Men Write About Growing Up. He is currently writing both a travel memoir and his first novel, the divergent plots of which he tries diligently not to confuse. A Clio Award-winning ad copywriter, he writes inspirational TV commercials for toys and thinks up evocative brand names for the scratch-resistant coating on eyeglasses. He lives in San Francisco, and no longer shows steers, heifers, bulls, oxen or bovine of any kind.
