Love. Regret. Humility. Shame. Pride. Living on the fringes of society, shunning expectations and obligations in favour of submitting to personal truth has its effects on a person. Sometimes it saves a life, and other times, it forces a life into a harsher reality. Marked by Scorn is a collection of stories and poems that explore the experiences of these people. Lesbians both open and hidden. Gay couples in South East Asia. Transgender and intersex people in the West. Interracial relationships throughout the world. Non-monogamy as seen through the eyes of choice and culture. With a sampling of genres to discover including contemporary fiction, romance, speculative fiction, and memoir, delve into the narratives of people who have been part of non-traditional relationships.
