British author, poet, and journalist Otamere Guobadia writes about desire, love, queerness, race, art, and pop culture with humor and insight. His work has appeared in i-D, Dazed, GQ, The Guardian, British Vogue, and the Gay Times, among other publications, and in 2021, he was the host of “In Love With Otamere,” a video series on Jameela Jamil’s YouTube channel. As part of our series “Work Sucks, I Know,” in which writers explore how jobs aren’t all they’re cracked up to be, Otamere wrote about the hell of working entry-level jobs at fashion magazines.
