Created in opposition to Florida's Don't Say Gay bill, Written With Pride is an anthology exclusively filled with short stories by authors who all belong to the broad and beautiful spectrum of the LGBTQIA+ community. The stories range in style and subject matter, as well as genre-from contemporary to speculative fiction. Not all of them have happy endings, but all of them were penned by members of our community who still believe in their voice.

Doomcookies and Donuts by Marianne Xenos

In the late '80s in Central Square Cambridge, two girls meet in the lobby of the Joy of Movement Center. They seem to be a normal teenagers, possibly wanna-be goths, but Hazel is half Fae and Evi is a fifty-year old vampire. They discover that each holds a much an even more precious secret. The story brings them to them two Cambridge landmarks: Harvard Donut and the Club Manray.

This Anthology by Not a Pipe Press is available in hardcover, paperback and  ebook.
