Bio: Florida-born, California-raised, and currently hailing from Denver, Colorado, Greg is the creator and writer of the LGBT series of super-hero novels, Rainbow Arc of Fire.
Begun in the late summer of 1994, and first published in fall of 1996, the series now consists of ten novels, the first eight of which are available in print.
In addition to those, two novels are currently published online at the Gay League Web site: Rainbow Arc of Fire: Shattered Dawn and Rainbow Arc of Fire: Olive Branch.
The series merges the real-life experiences of the author and the contemporary locations where those experiences have taken place with several fictional characters and their extraordinary escapades, to provide tales in which the diverse sexuality of those characters becomes the perspective through which they view the world and the world views them.
Relationships, Colorado's Amendment 2, gays in the military, gay marriage, AIDS, prejudice, and many more issues and concerns of LGBT individuals play out in locales as diverse as The Rocky Mountains; The U.S. Air Force Academy; Denver, Colorado; Yellowstone National Park; the Underworld of the Greek God, Hades; Europe; Asia; and, eventually, outer space. These may be super-powered beings, but they are still, and primarily, human beings.
The series has been the author's life's work and absorbing passion. Whether there will be more novels in the series, only time and circumstance will tell.

[Queer Eye on Comics, Posted 2/19/06]
It’s the Second Anniversary of Queer Eye On Comics! Thank you, thank you. We launched our weekly online column on February 22, 2004 and have not missed a week save one (during the hectic 2004 San Diego Comic-Con). Because of the great dedication and exemplary work being done by our writers, I wanted to celebrate this anniversary by taking a fond look back.
Ah, it seemed like just…two years ago that Rich Thigpen asked me to edit the column. Though Prism Comics is dedicated to…
YOUNG AVENGERS SPECIAL #1
[Color Commentary, Posted 1/11/06]
“You wonder how these things begin.” That line is from the musical, The Fantastiks, but it could just as easily apply to a reader’s expectations regarding this issue. We have already been provided with the bare bones description of how the Young Avengers first formed:
When an idealistic 30th-century teenager discovers he is destined to become the time-traveling despot know as Kang the Conqueror, he travels back to the 21st century to enlist the aid of Kang’s greatest…
“SECRET IDENTITIES PART ONE”
[Color Commentary, Posted 11/30/05]
Comic book superheroes all have the potential for “Coming Out”. This has been true, literally, for decades, ever since the very beginning when Superman began leaping “over tall buildings in a single bound”. The rub was always, “Who, disguised as Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper, fights a never-ending battle….” We all get the picture.
Their secret identities became the means that each of them utilized to keep themselves and their loved ones…
[Color Commentary, Posted 2/2/05]
Hate crimes, no matter the target, no matter the forum for depicting them, are not straightforward actions to portray. But in this two-issue arc, author Judd Winick effectively takes his reluctant readers through the gut-wrenching journey that was both courageous of him to pen as well as DC to publish.
You see, in October 1998, not that many miles north of Denver, CO, where I live, a young college student, Matthew Shepard, was brutally beaten and left to die, while tied to a rural fence,…
