#RainbowSnippets: A Symposium in Space

Welcome to Rainbow Snippets!

Every Saturday or Sunday, those participating post and share six sentences of LGBTQIA+ fiction on their blogs. It can be their own. It can be someone else’s. It just needs to be LGBTQIA+.

To read a wide variety of samples from LGBTQIA+ stories, go to…


For mine, Phaedra is going to pick up where she left off last week in A Symposium in Space…

What would it have been like, to grow inside another woman’s body, being nourished by her, my heart beating inside her? It sounded terrifying, being that close to someone else, needing someone else so utterly and completely.

Perhaps if I had experienced such closeness, I wouldn’t seek it with other people. I wouldn’t need them so badly.

Perhaps I wouldn’t have been desperate for any kind of affection I might get from Pausania.

“Men might have done those things to fill the emptiness inside of them,” I murmured. “A child could never grow within their bodies. Maybe that inability to create life became a void they sought to fill.”

    1. Thank you! Phaedra grew up without ever having met a man, so she speculates about them as a group rather than judging on a person to person perspective, which leads to all sorts of group presumptions, i.e. prejudice, even though she doesn’t realize this. (rueful grin)


  1. Thank you! Very true…I have a tendency to see bonding with someone as an infant, having someone who cares about us at that vulnerable age, giving us love, nourishment, holding us as the truly important building block in a baby’s development, but I was born in the way most humans are. You’re right…we don’t know.
