Tracy E. Gilchrist

"I couldn’t be more honored than to be nominated by POWER UP, an organization I’ve admired and supported since my cub reporter days for regional LGBT papers back in Connecticut and since my time serving on the programming committee of the Connecticut Gay and Lesbian Film Festival when I discovered the groundbreaking, positive images of LGBT people POWER UP was creating with its whimsical and poignant short films."

Tracy E. Gilchrist, a self-confessed cinephile with a degree in film theory from Mount Holyoke College, has acted as SheWired’s Editor in Chief since its 2008 inception. Formerly, she worked as Senior Editor for Here Media’s pioneering Lesbiannation.com. With SheWired, Tracy has spearheaded expanding the site’s video offerings including bringing on new episodes of the popular series Cherry Bomb, launching the live-streamed call-in talk show The Gloves Are OFF! with Cathy DeBuono and Jill Bennett, developing an interview series featuring gay women in the business and creating and hosting her Lesbian Film School series. New to Los Angeles in 2006, she landed a job reporting for the now, Pulitzer-nominated, The National Enquirer, but soon moved on. Prior to moving to LA from Connecticut Tracy honed her interviewing style covering celebrities and community pioneers as a frequent contributor to Curve and regional LGBT publications including Boston’s In Newsweekly and New England’s Metroline magazine. She has also contributed entertainment pieces to The Advocate, Advocate.com, Los Angeles magazine and In Los Angeles.
