🧑🧑🧑 Heyyyyy you! I am so grateful you found this community! You, the reader, make what I do so fulfilling. So, thanks for being here.


q: where am i? what is this?

This is hi, lauren deborah! β€” which is essentially my digital journal β€” where I do not pretend to be an expert on anything but I do lean into the fact that I cannot shut up. Someone once tried to sass me by calling me a chronic oversharer and now I have an entire brand built off of it so thank youuuuuuuu for the inspo!

I mostly talk about my sexuality, sobriety, and my excessive celebrity crushes. I take questions from readers, too. Drop me a line here. 🌈 🀍 βœ¨πŸ†

q: are you going to spam my inbox?

🍭 (most) tuesdays: Queer joy with a new episode of My Dad Stole My Limelight.

🍭 fridays: The digital journal of a chronic oversharer with a new volume of my writing and a prompt for you to answer in the comments, if you wish.

q: who is lauren?

My name is Lauren Deborah (she/they). I like to write the truth (about myself, mostly, but not always). πŸ•Ί I also host the podcast My Dad Stole My Limelight 🌈 β€” a podcast about coming out β€”that lives on the 604 Podcast Network.

You can see more of what other super fun things I have created or been involved in here! 🌈

q: why hi, lauren deborah?

Because it feels like a love letter from your BFF. Readers often tell me they love to wake up and start their Friday by reading my digital journal… then I pinch myself. This is where I say the things I would never say out loud. hellllloooo back stage pass into my deep (and maybe dark*) thoughts!

*I will take the last slice of vegan pizza at a wedding and not feel bad about it.

q: is it really free?

I want hi, lauren deborah! to always be accessible to anyone who wishes to support me and for cost to never be a barrier between readers and my words. However, should you choose to put a little tip in my pocket as thanks for all of the work I put into every post, I would be so grateful!
