Solarwyrm Press has posted an anthology call for "Marked by Scorn".  This will be an anthology featuring non-traditional relationships - "any romantic/sexual in nature relationships that deviate from society's stereotype of 'normal'".  Any genre is acceptable and the stories don't have to revolve around the relationship, it just has to be a part of the story.  1000 to 8000 words for shorts, they're also looking at poetry and non-fiction for this one.  The deadline is January 15, 2015 and payment is 1/2cent a word plus one print copy.  You can find all the details here.
