It was important that this anthology be as inclusive as possible. I don’t recall receiving a submission for a trans protagonist but I did receive several lesbian stories. This was my favorite because of the mix of characters and topics. Quirky but quiet. A. L. Simonds can be found here.
Sex wasn’t supposed to be like this. Shame hurt as much as any bite, and, somehow, perversely, felt just as good. Priya gasped for air, riding the rippling aftershocks, and tried not to question herself.
She succeeded, but not for long.
