Fractured Fairy Tales

Vassily the Beautiful

Today’s topic comes from QSFer (and admin) Angel Martinez:

“Fractured fairy tales. Which ones do you wish someone would retell as an lgbtqi story?”

I love reading reinterpretations of fairy tales, especially those with an LGBT twist.

Some of my favorites include Angel’s own Vassily the Beautiful, one Jon Keys is finishing up that retells Cinderella in a Colorado rodeo setting, and (stepping outside the LGBT community for a sec) the amazing Beauty by Sheri Tepper.

So our questions today – what fairy tale, myth or fable would you like to see retold from an LGBT spec fic perspective, and how would you do it? And what are some good books or short stories you’ve read that have pulled this off?
