Patricia joined the editorial board of Film Quarterly when B. Ruby Rich became editor in 2013. Film Quarterly has been publishing substantial, peer-reviewed writing on motion pictures since 1958, earning a reputation as the most authoritative academic film journal in the United States. Its wide array of topics, perspectives, and approaches has appealed to film scholars and cinephiles alike, and with a new design and online features, Film Quarterly is staking out a central position in a rapidly changing field.

Patricia served as co-editor of Moving Image Reviews in GLQ from its founding in 1996 until 2002. Providing a much-needed forum for interdisciplinary discussion from a queer perspective, GLQ publishes scholarship, criticism, and commentary in areas as diverse as law, science studies, religion, political science, and literary studies. GLQ particularly seeks out new research into historical periods before the twentieth century, into non-Anglophone cultures, and into the experience of those who have been marginalized by race, ethnicity, age, social class, body morphology, or sexual practice.
