Casgliad o straeon sy’n dathlu hiwmor, tywyllwch a dyfnder emosiwn y profiad cwiar a thraws. Yn y casgliad cyntaf hyfryd hwn o straeon arobryn, mae cymeriadau cwiar a thraws yn brwydro i ddod o hyd i gariad a maddeuant, er gwaethaf eu camgymeriadau comig, weithiau trasig. Mewn un stori, mae menyw lesbiaidd ifanc yn ceisio cael babi gyda’i chariad gan ddefnyddio rhoddwr sberm amhroffesiynol a choctel lliw enfys pwerus.

Yn y cyfamser mae person anneuaidd ar drothwy’r brif lawdriniaeth yn arbrofi’n beryglus gyda pherthynas agored yn ystod anterth argyfwng COVID. Gyda mewnwelediad, mae’r awdur cyntaf Lydia Conklin yn mynd â’u darllenwyr i gyfarfod clwb llyfrau ffeministaidd cwiar ac i gonfensiwn ar gyfer pobl ifanc traws, gan ddatgelu ochrau tywyll a hoffus eu cymeriadau.

Bydd y straeon yn Rainbow Rainbow yn gwneud i chi chwerthin a winsio, weithiau ar yr un pryd.


Release Date: 9th June 2022

A collection of stories that celebrate the humour, darkness and depth of emotion of the queer and trans experience that’s not typically represented: liminal or uncertain identities, queer conception and queer joy. In this delightful debut collection of prize-wining stories, queer, gender-nonconforming and trans characters struggle to find love and forgiveness, despite their sometimes comic, sometimes tragic mistakes. In one story, a young lesbian tries to have a baby with her lover using an unprofessional sperm donor and a high-powered, rainbow-coloured cocktail.

In another, a fifth-grader explores gender identity by dressing as an ox – instead of a matriarch – for a class Oregon Trail reenactment. Meanwhile a nonbinary person on the eve of top surgery dangerously experiments with an open relationship during the height of the COVID crisis. With insight and compassion, debut author Lydia Conklin takes their readers to a meeting of a queer feminist book club and to a convention for trans teenagers, revealing both the dark and lovable sides of their characters.

The stories in Rainbow Rainbow will make you laugh and wince, sometimes at the same time.
