Brave Boy World: A Sci-Fi Transman Anthology

Pink Narcissus Press is currently seeking stories for a new anthology. Stories must fall into the category of science fiction (hard or soft), and must feature a transgender male protagonist. Given the nature of speculative fiction, however, we are willing to consider stories that feature non-binary, intersex or genderfluid characters, but for this project, any non-binary character should either identify strongly as male, or the story should deal with themes of what it means to be “masculine” or a “man” in terms of the world setting in which the story takes place.

We strongly encourage writers who are transgender to submit, however being trans is not a requirement.  However, all cisgender writers should be familiar with the trans experience.

No erotica. Furthermore, stories that fetishize trans people will be rejected forthwith with a salty response from one of the editors.

Submissions will remain open until the anthology is filled. No word length requirement. Payment of $100 per story will be made prior to publication. We will consider reprints, with a token payment of $50.

If submitting, please format the header of the e-mail as follows: Brave Boy World [Last Name] [Title of Story]. Questions and submissions may be sent to
