My Q&A for the September issue of Seattle Met is online. I talked to Gene Armstrong, the organizer of the Rainfurrest convention, a Seattle event that attracts furries from all over the world, some of whom come to simply have a blast—splashing around a courtyard pool, making lifelong friends who sustain them through the struggles of a lifestyle often ridiculed by their family and peers—others of whom do a bunch of drugs and flush diapers down toilets. The latter group has prevented the convention from returning to Seattle this year. We’ll see if Gene can get things up and running next year.
And I’m really excited about next month’s Q&A, which inspired me to return to the work of the incredible Ta-Nehesi Coates. Will share it here once it’s up.
