Clare McBride is a French-American queer weirdo from the American South with a lot of feelings and opinions about media, fan culture, and queer history. She was reared on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Lord of the Rings, and VH1’s I Love the 80s, which frankly tells you everything you need to know. She rarely leaves New York City.

She used to blog at The Literary Omnivore from 2009 to 2016. Now she blogs here and at Lady Business, where she is a contributing editor.

The Omnivore’s Almanac was established on July 17th, 2016.
