FELIX ROSE KAWITZKY
Hi! My name is Felix.
I am a queer trans artist, writer and researcher.
I write and run Live Action Roleplaying games, and table-top sci-fi fantasy campaigns.
I am a PhD candidate at the University of York. My research is in the field of science fiction, fantasy and collective storytelling via roleplay gaming.
I have published a queer, anarchist, non-human, sci-fi centric tarot deck called the Tarot of Many Doors, available here and here
My long term goal is to help establish an anarchist community on the moon.
