Show Notes

We welcome artist and author Kira Leigh (they/them) to the podcast to share their new LGBTQ+ sci-fi trilogy, Constelis Voss! The series opens on a dystopic planet-sized ship in the far future, where a very advanced android receives a personality file from the 90s. He is the only one of his kind. This is fiction that exists to analyze politics of power (and act as a crash course in media literacy/crit).

Kira talks about key subject matters that are relevant to the current and future generations, especially regarding non-binary and non-conforming humans that courageously blur the lines of tradition and status quo. They explain about their growing up and history with artistic expression, which evolved into anime and illustration, plus written content. 

Kira says they make art like breathing and plays way too many video games (which we have a chat about as well)! Be sure to support Kira in their endeavour to make the world more inclusive and non-conforming.
