We’re back with another Portrait of a Fan and this time I am honored to introduce Taylor Ray! If you attended Clexacon 2019, you couldn’t miss his bright pink hair or infectious smile. He was beyond sweet, inviting to anyone who spoke to him and above all embodied everything that an Earper is. Sadly, I didn’t get to spend much time with him over the course of the weekend but what time we did have was full of laughter. He’s courageous, overcomes the odds and deserves to be seen for the wonderful man he is. That and he’s really a kick-ass human being. Without further ado, here’s the Portrait of a Fan: Taylor!

Favorite Convention Story? If you have never been to one, which would you go to and why?
The Giant Unicorn Float that someone shipped to me, and then I delivered for a whole 10 minutes in the pool at the Tropicana for the Clexacon registration pool party. And the float somehow got lost…even with it being 9 feet tall and fits 8 people.
What does fandom mean to you?
A shared interest in something where we do our best to lift up the thing that we enjoy. Specific to Earpers: family.
