Early life and education

Duca was born in New York City. Her parents live in New Jersey.[3]

In 2013, Duca graduated from Fordham University with a bachelor's degree in English and Philosophy.[5] During this time she was editor in chief of the alternative newspaper, the paper.[6]


After working as an online editorial intern for New York in 2013, Duca worked as a reporter at The Huffington Post from 2013 to 2015. In 2015, she began working as a freelance reporter, where she often writes for Teen Vogue.

In December 2016, Duca drew attention for an op-ed in Teen Vogue titled "Donald Trump is Gaslighting America",[7][8] which argued that then President-elect Donald Trump relied on deceit to undermine the truth so his critics would question their own judgment.[9] As of December 23, 2016, the essay had been viewed 1.2 million times, becoming the magazine's most-viewed post.[10] Katie Mettler of The Washington Post said, "he Internet lit up with praise for 'scorched-earth' op-ed."[11] The essay was widely cited as a turning point in the fashion magazine's reputation, with a newly recognized political dimension.[10][12][13]

Duca appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight on December 23, 2016.[14] In the heated exchange over Duca's commentary on Ivanka Trump,[15] Duca criticized host Tucker Carlson for not allowing her to speak and called Carlson a "partisan hack"; in response he told her that instead of political commentary, she "should stick to the thigh-high boots," referring to her earlier articles on pop-star Ariana Grande.[16] Online harassment of Duca followed, including threats of sexual assault.[17]

In response, Duca named her new column at Teen Vogue, begun in February 2017,[9] "Thigh-High Politics."[18] She also designed a tee-shirt in July 2017 with the phrase "I like my politics thigh-high," and donated 100 percent of the proceeds from each $32 shirt to Planned Parenthood in Tucker Carlson's name.[19] As of December 2017, over $10,000 was raised.[20]

In January 2017, the Twitter account of Martin Shkreli was suspended after repeatedly tweeting about dating Duca and then sharing Photoshopped pictures of himself with Duca on his account.[21][22][23]

On 21 February 2018 Lauren responded to Billy Graham's death by tweeting:

The big news today is that Billy Graham was still alive this whole time. Anyway, have fun in hell, bitch.[24]

Her post resulted in a backlash on the internet.[25] In response to a Fox News' coverage of her tweet, Duca noted:

The Fox article and segment on my stupid tweet are really miraculous in their bad-faith consternation. Billy Graham called being gay "a sinister form of perversion," and floated the idea that "AIDS is a punishment from God." If hell is real, that's exactly where he's headed.[26]

Duca has contributed to The New York Times, Vice, Complex, New York Magazine, Brooklyn Magazine, Pacific Standard, The Nation, and The New Yorker.

Personal life

Duca lives in Brooklyn.[27] Duca is married,[28] but announced on Twitter on January 13, 2019 that she is getting divorced.[29] She is queer.[29]
