Sorin joins me for an interview as a devoted representative of RMFC, even after the con’s sad, surprising end. It was a happening that Dogpatch.press had some part in, even if issues were brewing long before and carried forward on their own. That makes it extra gracious of Sorin to be open and professional about talking. Questions were prepared to build a formal article, then sent in live chat. Sorin fielded them on the fly, with power to review before publication to keep his side as intended. You will see probing opinions from one side, then the other side to make a dialogue. (-Patch)
Hi Sorin. We’re only talking because of sad circumstances – maybe we can improve that. Can you introduce yourself briefly? What are you like besides having been chair of RMFC?
I’ve been part of the furry fandom since 1996, and have been attending conventions since 1998 starting with Confurence and Anthrocon, later Further Confusion and Rainfurrest. I’ve been a part of Rocky Mountain Fur Con since its inception, first as the Vice-Chair and later stepping into the Chairman position when the previous chair stepped down. I’m a social person and like the furry community for its openness and acceptance.
