Her academic work explores overlaps in art, medicine, and media and investigates ways in which queer communities use grassroots performance to make interventions in health disparities and medical disregard.

She is a 2022-2023 CSU Chancellors Doctoral Fellow, and received a HATCH: Mellon Arts and Science grant for her Sappho chatbot project.

Cage’s earlier work was in queer media, first as the editor of the historic lesbian sex magazine
On Our Backs
, and later as an author of sex and relationship advice books and host of The Diana Cage Show on SiriusXM. She is the author of six books, including the Lambda award winning Lesbian Sex Bible (Quiver, 2015) and The Husbands, a chapbook memoir on men, marriage, and masculinity.
