I am a transgender male homosexual author of m/m romance and erotic fiction. I believe that love is neither racist nor sexist and that one sexy man can only be made better by adding another one...or maybe two more.
I'm going to the first annual RainbowCon in Tampa, Florida this year and I am on a few panels, I'm doing a signing, AND I'm doing a reading (THAT should be interesting).
So if you're going to be there and you want to stalk... er, see me, because I AM the original invisible gaylord ninja Dom and if your eyes aren't open you might just miss me, here are the panels/areas where I am scheduled:
(Salon A) Heroes and Heroines with Disabilities - Do the heroes and heroines of fiction need to always be perfect? How can authors better represent the diversity of disability? Are readers accepting of the imperfect hero or heroine? Anel Viz, Eli Easton, Nicole Dennis, Princess so, Vicktor Alexander, HOST: Rhys Ford
(Salon C) Writing Diversity - It's difficult to find diversity in race, religion, ability, and occupation in a lot of QUILTBAG fiction. Join our panelists to discuss what it takes to bring the brilliant variety of life into fictional worlds. Carole Cummings, K-lee Klein, Skylar M. Cates, Stephen del Mar, Vicktor Alexander, HOST: David Berger
5:30 - 6:00pm
(Salon A) Author Question and Answer Sessions - Have a question you've been dying to ask your favorite author? Why'd that character act that way? What was your inspiration for this story? When's that sequel coming out, anyway? Now's your chance to find out the answers!
Beau Schemery, Jeff Adams, Stephen del Mar, Vicktor Alexander, Wade Kelly
(Salon C) Fifty Shades of WTF? - There's good BDSM, there's bad BDSM, and then there are fifty shades of WTF?! This panel takes a look at BDSM in fiction. There will be pointers, examples and plenty of laughs for all!
Amelia C. Gormley, Andrew Grey, Michael Murphy, Vicktor Alexander, VJ Summers, HOST: Gryvon
Authors Readings & Signings
1:45pm (Salon B) Vicktor Alexander
(Salon B) Moving Past the G: LBTQ Fiction - So much attention often goes to the G in GLBTQ that the rest of the letters are forgotten! No more of that! This panel is all about appreciating the rest of the spectrum and encouraging authors to write more characters beyond the G!
(Salon B) Writing Trans* and Genderqueer Characters - There is a much ignored aspect of the QUILTBAG: trans* and genderqueer individuals. In writing, it's not so difficult to reach out and embrace all manner of character, and this panel discusses how to accurately and respectfully include trans* and genderqueer characters.
Allison Cassatta, DC Juris, K. Piet, Kelly Rand, Sara York, HOST: Vicktor Alexander
(Salon B) Rooster and Pig Publisher Spotlight - Join Rooster and Pig for an hour all about them!
