Denise Warner was born and raised in Niagara Falls, NY before graduating in 1986 and moving to Florida at the age of 17.

She has been dabbling in comedic writing ever since and has articles in many different LGBT publications, blogs, and e-zines. Working at a South Florida FM radio station, Denise was a part of one of the first national gay radio shows to hit the airwaves, “Issues Over the Rainbow”.

Since that time, Denise and best friend, Donna have been co-hosting a live, weekly LGBT internet radio show called “The Lesbian Lounge with Denise & Donna” for the past 6 years on www.MyLesbianRadio.combased out of South Florida, USA. Recently, Denise married her long distance girlfriend, Jemma and moved to Surrey, England in the U.K. The show continues to grow and is now billed as the only live BI-CONTINENTAL internet radio show as Donna continues to maintain the local state-side happenings, while Denise dove into the international LGBT community, making appearances and announcing acts at both The Go-Go Festival and The L-Fest this summer. Denise also showcases her writing by doing most of the cover interviews for the popular SHE Magazine -a leading source for South Florida Women -13 years strong (www.shemag.com)  Interviews have included Wanda Sykes, Chely Wright, Joan Jett, Taylor Dayne, Margaret Cho, Fran Drescher, Melissa Ferrick and Kim Kardashian this year. “The Lesbian Lounge” on MyLesbianRadio.com has been featured in CURVE Magazine, and have been voted Best Lesbian Podcast in the Curvey Award 2010 edition.
