(Project Unicorn: A Lesbian YA Extravaganza! is a year long project seeking to release two short stories a week for an entire year, all speculative YA fiction, all with lesbian heroines. All written by myself and my amazing wife, author Jennifer Diemer.)
It’s official: we are HALFWAY THROUGH THE YEAR on Project Unicorn.
That means that this is the sixth eZine! The theme this time around was “Winged Things” and we had SO MUCH fun with it (I mean, seriously–I always wanted to write a story about winged Buffalo, and when do you ever really get a chance to do that? And make it all artistic? ❤ I was so happy with this theme). These stories cover the gambit of things with wings, of magic and paranormal creatures and girls finding their way and girls not finding their way and girls finding strength and being vulnerable…all young adult stories, all featuring a lesbian heroine.
Project Unicorn exists because people need to see themselves in literature, or they are erased, invalidated, invisible. Project Unicorn exists because the only way that the word "lesbian" will stop being synonymous with "porn" is when we're seen as human beings who deserve stories, and not a fetish. Project Unicorn exists because girls need stories about strength, about vulnerability, about being your own savior. Project Unicorn exists because lesbians deserve stories.
Please support that by spreading the word, by purchasing an eZine, by telling a friend about a story that touched you.
And, as always, thank you for reading.
