Now, more than ever, we need to revel in the bright spots amidst the darkness. With your support, Glitter + Ashes: Queer Tales of a World That Wouldn't Die will be an anthology about queer joy and queer community in the face of disaster. Our aim is to feature speculative stories that explore ramifications of the apocalypse through queer narratives. We want queer stories and we want trans stories and we want indefinable stories. We will welcome a broad interpretation of the post-apocalyptic genre; we'll want to finds scraps of hope in every ruined future.
