IQARUS Con Coming May 8th!


Hey, everyone! I’m Alix Q. Starr, but you can call me the IQARUS Kitten. My pronouns are they/them. I love to curl up and read all kinds of queer books—Contemporary, Fantasy, Historical, Horror & Thriller, Romance, Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult, I love it all. That’s why I’m purrfectly delighted to have been raised in the IQARUS family.


That’s right, you don’t know what IQARUS is, do you? Well, IQARUS stands for International Queer Authors and Readers Uniting Stories. We’re new. We’re a not profit organisation whose goal is to bring together readers and authors, globally, through a rainbow of queer fiction and laps, and wow! It is great—the fiction, not the laps, but they are good too. Heh.

We have our first international conference coming up on Saturday May 8, 2021 (that will be Sunday May 9, 2021 for those of you in Asia, Australia and New Zealand). Mark your calendars!

We have a great day planned, with readings, panel discussions, and social activities. Authors, editors, podcasters, readers, vloggers: there’s something for everyone.
