We’re very thrilled to announce that Sandra McDonald’s wonderful story “Drag Queen Astronaut” was selected for the Honor List for the 2010 James Tiptree Jr. Award! “Drag Queen Astronaut” appeared in Crossed Genres’ Character of Color issue (Issue #24).

["Drag Queen Astronaut" is] a wonderful exploration (and ultimately an affirmation) of a gender presentation that tends to be ignored or ridiculed.

The winner was Baba Yaga Laid an Egg by Dubravka Ugresic. The announcement & Honor List are both posted on the Tiptree website.

Congratulations to Sandra, and to the winner and all the Honor List authors!
