Mika Epstein (She/Her)

Panels:

Hey, Alexa, What's Queer on TV Today?

Mika has been deep in fandom since she could say 'Trekkie.' With decades of experience in running fansites, developing software and organizing communities, she's taken on the challenge of delving into the recesses of television for queers long forgotten. Mika lives with her wife and their cats in Southern California. Of course she has a hybrid, but she'd rather ride her bicycle.

Nadia Tursi (She/Her)

Panels:

Notes From The Hostel: Live

Nadia is a podcaster, musician, and rabid Jeopardy fan. No personality could ever be accurately represented in a single sentence, but that seems like a pretty good summary to her (it's me, I'm writing this in the third person). She hosts Notes From The Hostel: A Marvel's Runaways Podcast with her girlfriend and it's a great joy for her to talk almost uninterrupted for an hour straight.

Nikki Tantum (She/Her)

Panels:

Hey, Alexa, What's Queer on TV Today?

Nikki is a Staff Writer for LezWatch.TV and a self-identified queer TV nerd. She was a co-host of the Harold They're Lesbians podcast and loves to talk endlessly about her favorite queer characters and superheroes.

Rae D. Magdon (She/Her)

Panels:

Rae D. Magdon is a writer of queer and lesbian fiction. She believes everyone deserves to see themselves fall in love and become a hero, especially lesbians, bisexual women, trans women and women of color. She has published over ten novels through Desert Palm Press, spanning a wide variety of genres. Her cyberpunk novel, Lucky 7, received a 2019 Goldie (Fantasy/Sci-Fi) and a 2019 Rainbow Award (Fantasy/Sci-Fi).

S.W. Andersen (She/Her)

Hard Shell, Soft Center: Queer Women as Antiheroes

From old west gunslingers to a love that transcends time and space, S.W. Andersen has penned six romantic adventures, including the best selling lesbian romances, Love By Design and Switchback. Having been raised by her mother, a strong female character in her own right, she has always been attracted to stories that depicted independent, determined, capable women. A romantic at heart, her characters are rooted in hope and perseverance. When she isn’t working or writing, she enjoys outdoor activities and traveling with her wife and best friend of twenty-two years, Dianna. They share their ten acres in rural Florida with a rambunctious crew of dogs, cats and horses.
