Via various people, I love this ad.

cfs and a bit of useful information

So, Crossed Genres has an upcoming LGBTQ themed edition, and they’re currently calling for submissions. This is the ad:

Unfortunately, Flash Fiction Online have chosen not to run this ad because it is “sexually themed” (because, the editor clarifies, “GLBTQ issues are inextricably linked to sex”). I mention this because it’s useful to writers of queer fiction to know where they are and are not likely to be accepted.

In the meantime, Crossed Genres are still calling for submissions. And they clearly are queer-fiction-friendly.

EDIT: Submissions are closed.
