Published in 1994, this anthology of queer writing is both a fascinating artifact from a time when AIDS was necessarily a death sentence and many gay writers published under pseudonyms, and a totally ahead of its time/timeless collection (back when few people knew what "FTM" meant, there was apparently already a bit of a scene in SF).
My favorite pieces included Elissa Perry's empathic story of a bus ride gone bad, Trac Vu's prose poem about gum and oral sex, and Sparrow 13 LaughingWand's truthfully raw poem (and his name).
