Leigh Ann Carey
Politics and Culture Writer
I'm gay enough but definitely not electable.
How people make meaning in their lives is a longtime fascination of mine. So writing features and analysis pieces on culture, politics, identities, and religious belief comes naturally. I excel at surfacing stories that add texture and depth, and even challenge what we think we know.
Prior to running headlong into the burning building that is The Media, I led online strategy efforts for campaigns around the country through Brave Creations, an agency I founded.

I hold a BA in Political Science from Campbell University in Buies Creek. Go Hoyas, Huskies, and Camels!
