Decoded Pride is an independently produced anthology of speculative queer fiction by queer creators, edited by Sara Century and S.E. Fleenor.
All thirty of these short stories and comics, which include science fiction, fantasy, and horror, have been collected in this special version for eBooks, which features powerful cover art from comic creator Jeffrey Brown and original illustrations by Sara Century. Authors include Priya Sridhar, Stephanie Burt, Rachel Gold, Emmalia Harrington, Brandon Ortega, Jalexa Schell-McCall, Maria Dong, and many more.
From a supernatural (feminist) shark to fairies who serve extremely strong drinks to dragons with dental bills, Decoded contains stories and comics that will make you think, stories that will make you laugh, and stories that will probably make you shed a few tears. Our authors explore the broadest reaches of queerness to tell the stories that matter to queer folks.
Decoded was created to focus on queer content rather than tokenizing it or allowing others to default to hiring non-queer people to tell our stories. Pride has been indecipherable from its corporate agenda for many people’s entire lifetimes. For us, creating spaces that are independently run and all our own is necessary to the survival of our communities.
Our creators write and draw stories with queer themes for queer audiences and our allies. From the cover art to the editorial team, every single creator who contributed to this project is queer, so support independent queer art and storytelling today!
Special Editor's Note: This volume also includes a promo code for a free version of the professionally formatted PDF, so that you can enjoy these stories in all their full-color glory.

About the Author
Decoded is a story-a-day anthology of queer science fiction, fantasy, and horror by queer authors. We release a short story or comic to subscribers every day of Pride month (June 1 – 30) and these stories are available year round. The point of Decoded is to create a space for queer folks to build community as fiction writers and comic creators. Our creators write and draw stories with queer themes for queer audiences and our allies.
Decoded is a new anthology edited by Sara Century and S.E. Fleenor, creative partners and co-hosts of Bitches on Comics, a comics and pop culture advice podcast– we’re also critics and creators. We both write fiction and we both love reading fiction. This collection has come about because we believe that it is important to honor the rebellious, anti-fascist history of Pride by focusing on queer artists and writers of today.
Sara Century (she/her) is an artist, writer, and filmmaker who is obsessed with most things. She is good at speaking in public, working for most hours of her waking life, and saying quotable things in casual conversation. You can find Sara’s webcomic with Tana Thornock at http://www.thevolatileanesthetic.com
S.E. Fleenor (they/them) writes novels, creative non-fiction, and articles centering on feminism, queer identities, pop culture, and literature. Their writing has appeared in Vice, Electric Literature, them.us, Upworthy, The Muse, and Class Lives: Stories from Across the Economic Divide. They regularly write for SYFY WIRE’s feminist vertical, FANGRRLS, and Daily Xtra. Feisty, sometimes angry, sometimes funny, but always bringing realness, S.E. is ecstatic to share their love of genre with audiences that have historically been excluded, particularly LGBTQ folks.
