Thanks for visiting The Rainbow Guard! I’m Sam, and I love the intersection of queerness and high fantasy.
This blog was born out of a love of A Song of Ice and Fire and a desire to delve deeper into the ways gender and sexuality inform the text. As I continue to develop this project, expect to see content involving The Witcher, Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Prydain, The Chronicles of Narnia and more!
On a more personal level, I’m a bisexual trans man (he/him/his). I’m a Pisces (Cancer moon, Cancer rising), INFJ, an Ennegram 4. I’m a singer who dabbles around in viola, violin, and piano. I’m still a theatre kid at heart. I also come from a literary analysis and gender studies background; during my time in academia I published on subjects like queer theory, cyborg feminism, and (my) transgender experience.
