Last night we added the names of every single Kickstarter Backer to the site! We would like to thank you all again. Without your backing our project this would not be happening.
We received a myriad of identity declarations in our submissions, stories from trans men and women, lesbians, gays, polyamorous, demisexual, intersex, asexual, queer, non-binary, bisexual, gender-fluid and more. So many identities that they cannot all possibly be named from the top of our heads. This will easily be the most representative horror project ever created for our community. Ever. Seriously.
While not every story could be accepted, we really do appreciate everyone who submitted for this project. You are all absolutely beautiful in your truth and honesty and it was incredibly amazing to sit back and contemplate the vast spectrum of response to our open call.
In the next week we will be adding bios for each of our authors who would like to introduce themselves. You can get to know who they are right here and only here! Ultimately we have decided that the bios will not be included in the book. Some authors may prefer their privacy and as a community we can all understand and respect that. Every one of us has dealt with deciding the pros and cons of coming out and deciding not to do so publicly is as valid as any other decision made. We will not be sharing any information in the book because we may end up inadvertently outing someone who would rather not be. I will tell you that we have selected stories from a diverse group of talented LGBTQIA authors and yes, even a small number of stories from cishet allies who truly understood our mission to only include identity validating content that will scare the shit out of you.
Beautiful things happen when the community comes together and we are so thankful and humbled at the amount of interest and support we have received.
We cannot wait to share this project with you and will have more details soon.
