I may not have overtly mentioned this, but on top of writing gay, lesbian, asexual, etc. fiction/romance, I also do quite a bit of transgender and gender fluid tales. While I have received support for a lot of my gay titles, here lately I have become absolutely astonished at the shear ignorance and prejudice directed towards transgender people.
Gearing up to work on some really hard-hitting trans titles I've started to work on some smaller projects involving trans, bi-gender, gender fluid individuals. Today I decided to do a flash fiction writing in celebration of transgender youth suffering in silence.
It's not particularly edited well, but I hope the message is clear enough. I just wrote a quick little piece entitled 'Don't Die Tammy.' It's listed in my 'Other Stories' section. I encourage everyone to read it and really consider what a child like 'Tammy' goes through on a day-to-day basis. Though the story is a work of fiction, it can and does happen everyday.
Thank you for taking the time.
