Marry, Marry, Quite Contrary

May 27, 2009

A couple of weeks ago, I bought a button that reads, "Love is tender and knows no gender." I haven't pinned it to anything yet, but with the recent decision by the Cali Supreme Court to sustain Prop H8... well, I don't really need more of an incentive than that, do I?

*sigh*

You're probably wondering, 'Gee, what can I do to help?' Well, I'm glad you asked that. You can do one of two things or both of two things:

1) If you're a resident of the golden state, you can sign this petition...

...and/or...

2) ...If you're a resident of any state (or any place, for that mater), you can purchase a copy of I Do: An Anthology in Support of Marriage Equality, which includes my piece, "Holy Macaroni (and Cheese)." The proceeds generated from the sale of the anthology benefit Lambda Legal's sedulous struggle for the right of all people to tie the knot.

What's new in the world of Wonderland, you ask?

Well, Alison Tyler's collection, Hurts So Good: Unrestrained Erotica, won the Anthology Award in the National Leather Association: International Writing Awards. (Guess they've gone global.) Among this "superb collection of stories," as the NLA put it, is my Sapphic story, "Flick Chicks."

In other newsworthy news, three of the five compilations that took top honors in the Lesbian Fiction Readers' Choice Awards category, Favorite Anthology/Short Story Collection, contain pieces of mine: Wetter: More True Lesbian Sex Stories ("Bowl Me Over"), Island Girls: Tropical Lesbian Erotica ("Mahalo"), and Best Lesbian Love Stories 2009 ("The Felicity of Domesticity").
