Most of us define ourselves along rigid sexual lines. But what about those who choose to exist in the grey areas in between? Litro #144: Transgender opens its pages to stories of gender realignment and cross-dressing, questioning what it really means to be a man or woman. Is our gender arbitrarily assigned to us when we're conceived? Or might our notion of gender be more fluid than that? Can we decide for ourselves the gender that truly expresses our inner being? We want you to explore what it means to be a man, or a woman - or anything in between.
We accept short fiction, flash/micro fiction, and nonfiction. We do not accept poetry.
