Kieran Strange

He's been compared to David Bowie, Tony Stark, Ramona Flowers, Hawkeye, and Tank Girl - but IRL he's Kieran Strange, a quirky and powerful young multi-media artist blending pop sensibilities, dynamic guitars, and high-energy live rock shows into his own brand of geeky British pop-punk. At the age of seventeen, he left behind his parents, family, and sleepy English fishing village in order to chase him dream of making music. He traveled to Vancouver, Canada where he now resides, writing and performing songs about relationships, resistance, and RPGs.
 
Standing firmly as a voice for the different and the discarded, Kieran came out publicly as genderfluid in 2014 with the release of the Tear Down The Wall music video. After discovering more about his own gender identity whilst working with the crew of The Switch LGBTQ+ sitcom (currently playing on OutTV), he changed his pronouns from "she" to "he" in the summer of 2016 when he publicly adopted the "transgender man" identity.
 

These days, he always makes sure he is open, outspoken, understanding, patient, and passionate in his beliefs; some of the causes he fights for are LGBTQ+/SAGA issues and rights, feminism, autism awareness, racial equality, refugee and immigrant rights, and many forms of mental health and suicide prevention awareness.

In his time as an independent musician, the bedheaded geek has toured across three continents and multiple countries (including Canada, Japan, UK, and USA) and released two EPs: Adamantine Heart (2013) and Last Hero Standing (2015). This summer, he and his new musical project WE ARE THE CHAOS are planning to release a concept album possibly tied in with Kieran's latest release: the first full-length novel in an urban sci-fi series with LGBTQ+ and political aspects, drawing inspiration from fandoms such as DC and Marvel comics and television, Sherlock, Supernatural, and more. The book, Black Tie by Kieran Strange, is now available on Amazon both in eBook and paperback form - grab one now, and get it signed by him at the con!
