A number of the Geeks OUT bloggers will be tabling and taking part in numerous panels at Flame Con this weekend. Here's a quick little guide on where they who they are and where you can find them.
Alexa Cassaro - Table 5
Alexa Cassaro is an Illustrator, printmaker, craftsman, and fabricator from the NY, NJ area. Much of their work is YA related consisting of very strong sassy female characters, sensitive males, and curious genderless characters existing in an emotional and dramatic world. Their comics tend to have LGBTA+ and Gender Identity subjects. They support all the angsty confused teens and anime trash out there. Don’t be afraid to stop by table 5 and share your inner glitter with Alexa.
