F, M or Other: Quarrels with the Gender Binary


Featuring: femmes fatales, brazen boyishness, fierce feminism, mythos & eros, intersectional discourse, non-binary experiences, modern masculinities, speculative futures, supernatural beings, perspectives on ‘passing’ and everything in-between…


Gender is an elusive subject. Gender is deeply personal and subjective. It depends on who’s asking, who’s looking and who is living it. But it is also objective, rooted in history and a harsh, confining, reality for some. This anthology – a collection of short stories, essays, poems and comics – explores the subject without forcing certainty and definition upon it’s reader in a quarrelsome, uncompromising way.
