Devlyn Camp

Producer, writer, host

Devlyn is an alumnus of Columbia College Chicago. Before pursuing a degree in Writing & Producing for Television, they studied musical theatre history with Albert Williams, whose guidance led to a passion for queer history. Devlyn's work with the Mattachine podcast earned them a place on the Windy City Times
 "30 Under 30" in 2018 and recognition in the Chicago Tribune, just above a fab photo of Mary Steenburgen.
You can also find their writing covering the queer beat in the Chicago Reader.

They co-host and produce They & Them, a queer news podcast in Chicago. 
Devlyn also writes middle grade historical fantasy (featuring queer characters, of course) with their writing partner. Email if you have any inquiries! If not studying queer history, they're likely watching Frasier.
