Publications & Columns

In addition to public speaking and training/consulting, I am a writer. In early 2013, I published Getting to Ellen: A Memoir about Love, Honesty and Gender Change, and currently write for the Twin Cities’ Lavender Magazine in a monthly column titled “Skirting the Issues.”  I previously wrote for ACCESSline, an Iowa-based LGBTQ monthly.

My columns span surviving the Human Condition as a transgender person interacting with the everyday world. As of  August 2017, I estimate that 150,000 of my words have been published in various columns, periodicals, and web-based sites. Note: the below listing of columns is quite dated. Due to time constraints, I am unable to keep the list updated; however, if you click on the archives, you will find current columns. And if you have a real interest in my writings (and plenty of time on your hands–huh?),  simply Google “Ellie Krug Skirting the Issues Lavender Magazine” and you will find many of my columns.
