Flamingo is a Starsky & Hutch fan who writes, edits and publishes zines. She is the winner of various awards: Sizzler, Screwz, FanQ and STIFfie.

Flamingo is the main organizer for SHarecon and a tireless contributor to the fandom. She is well known for encouraging new fans and discouraging the use of terms like newbie.

Flamingo was instrumental in getting some of the very first Starsky and Hutch zine fiction posted online in 1998. From Black Bean Soup:
Come see our new archive. WE WANNA SHARE (http://www.geocities.com/TelevisionCity/Set/4384/index.html). S&H fandom is alive and well on the Net! Grab your blue Adidas, jump into your favorite flashy red car and join the fun! The S&H Archive proudly presents its current feature, the classic zine, The Goliath, written and illustrated by Suzan Lovett. Suzan has graciously allowed us to post her novel on the Net, *complete with its art.* Art and text files kept separate for everyone's convenience. Visit our new site and enjoy this classic piece of fiction and incredible art. Coming attractions: We hope to soon post Suzan's other novel, The Thousandth Man and its art. WE WANNA SHARE *MORE* Our new archive needs submissions. We'd love to give out-of-print S&H stories and art a second life on the Net -- but only with permission of authors & artists. We can provide anonymity. We are also interested in new stories and parts of longer works in progress. We can scan stories and art which aren't in electronic form. We also have editors who can help proof-read and edit any story before posting. As Huggy would say, when the spirit is willing, the Archive is capable of all kindsa groovy stuff! Anyone who is interested in a slash archive should E-mail [Flamingo].

This first archive had at least one morph after its inception and is now at the Starsky and Hutch Archive[1].

Flamingo is also notable because of the inclusion of one of her vids in the Escapade Vid Show Retrospective 1992-2001. The Starsky & Hutch vid included the song Livin' La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin.

Style and Themes

Flamingo's work, at least in Miami Vice fandom, frequently covers themes of dubious consent and homosexuality and masculinity. She has commented that she is not personally very fond of Hurt/Comfort (though she still writes it very well).
