Today, September 1 is Outer Alliance Pride Day set up by the Outer Alliance to promote the organisation of Queer sf/f/h or Speculative Fiction writers and promote queer Spec Fic more generally.

We're active as a Google Group (http://groups.google.com.au/group/the-outer-alliance), a blog (http://outeralliance.wordpress.com/) and on twitter (http://twitter.com/outeralliance)

So today members are posting excerpts of queer spec fic or just posts about queer spec fic.

My post is here @ http://www.benjaminsolah.com/blog/?p=1630

You can find more posts by following the Outer Alliance Twitter account or soon one of the leading members is going to compile links to all of the posts in one post on the blog.

Please spread the word.

It's still August 31 where I am, so I'm not posting until it's September 1st here. I'm definitely posting, but I'm still torn between which excerpt of which story I should post, or whether I should post about queer specfic in general.

Look forward to your post Alan. Good to see another AW member in on it.

I'll link to your post at the bottom of my post when yours is up.

Here (http://alan-yee.livejournal.com/2983.html) is my post. I'm a few hours early in my time zone, but I simply couldn't wait any longer.

No worries. I'll read it in a few hours when blogs are unblocked from work after 4pm

I'm hearing that there's like 180 or something posts for Pride Day now.

There's over 180 members now, but I'm not sure of the number of posts yet. It's still 9/1 in North America, so there could still be some more on the way.
