upcoming anthologies!

OK, welcome to day two of "link week," where I share links related to my writing and activism...

So today, I want to let folks know that I have pieces included in two anthologies being released this fall, both of which are about trans love/sex/relationships!

Trans/Love: Radical Sex, Love & Relationships Beyond the Gender Binary (edited by Morty Diamond, published by Manic D Press) includes pieces by Shawna Virago, Sassafras Lowery, Max Valerio, Silas Howard, Joelle Ruby Ryan, Ashley Altadonna, Cooper Lee Bombardier and others. My contribution, entitled "Cherry Picking," is about my many experiences with "virginity" over the course of my life.

The second soon-to-be-released anthology I will be in is Take Me There: Trans and Genderqueer Erotica (edited by Tristan Taormino, published by Cleis Press), which includes pieces by Kate Bornstein, Patrick Califia, S. Bear Bergman, Ivan Coyote, Laura Antoniou, Helen Boyd, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Toni Amato, Alicia E. Goranson, Tobi Hill-Meyer, Gina de Vries and others. My contribution happens to be about my long ago brief experimentation with a certain designer drug...

that's it for now. more links tomorrow... -j.
