About

About Goldie

Goldie Peacock writes stories, essays, and poems. Their words appear in publications such as HuffPost, Sundog Lit, (mac)ro(mic), and more. As a performer and art model, Goldie spent over a decade bouncing between frenetic movement and absolute stillness before chilling out and becoming a writer. This rich past experience often informs their writing. Celebrations of Goldie’s creative work include: a Brooklyn Nightlife Award and a Go Magazine Readers’ Choice Award, nominations for Best of the Net and Best Small Fictions, mentions in two drag history books, a gig headlining the Austin International Drag Festival, workshops taught at venues such as NYU, Georgia Tech, and The University of Southern Maine, and residencies with Chez Bushwick, Asylum Arts, and Earthdance. A panelist for the Newfound Prose Prize and first reader for Shortwave, they live in Lenapehoking (Brooklyn).

Fiction

Seagulls Circle and Scream

“So glorious was the June weather to which I’d arrived, though, that I dismissed any sense of foreboding. Portland’s motto was Resurgam, its mascot the Phoenix, suggesting struggle but also regeneration.”

Poetry

Red Ogre Review

“They drove me around, drove me mad, drove me to drill down into what it was about me, us, them, that brought us here. They had short hair and long hair, shaved and shagged and fauxhawked and free.”

Essay

HuffPost

It’s Time For Drag Kings To Detoxify Masculinity On TV

“Admirers of his chameleonic style span the entire gender spectrum. From his glimmering glitter beard to his smooth dance moves, he is magnetic and magnanimous, cool and congenial, the life of the party.”
