Combs) founder and artistic director of Liquid Fire Productions (an organization dedicated to the authentic representation of lesbians of color on stage and in film) - is a San Francisco-based erotic performance artist and burlesque dancer, actress, poetess, modern/jazz dancer, singer as well as director, producer, choreographer and filmmaker who has been wowing audiences in the San Francisco Bay Area and abroad with her sexy jaw-dropping performances for more than 12 years! In addition to the Liquid Fire Project, Veronica C. Combs, Artistic Director of Luna Sea Women's Performance Project in San Francisco from 1995 to 1998, is the producer and director of several festivals, performances, and events. Her work embodies a commitment to claiming erotic power, building bridges across racial, social and economic divides and celebrating the diversity of gender expression. Vixen's work is unapologetically sexual, multicultural, and assists us all to revel in the ecstasy of our own divine power.
Rhiannon Argo is a San Francisco based writer whose stories have been published in several anthologies, and in her own hand-made chapbooks. She recently took her trash-talking tales on the road with the new generation of Sister Spit, and is currently working on her first novel entitled, Switch.
Cristy C. Road from Miami, Florida, has been illustrating ideas, people, and places ever since she learned hot to hold acrayon. She blends the inevitable existence of social principles, secual curiousity, mental inadequacies, and dirty thoughts. Road thrives to testify the beauty of the imperfect. Her repertoire consists of ten years of independent publishing, two graphic novels, and countless illustrations for a broad range of magazines, record album art, concert posters, and political organizations. http://croadcore.org/
