The Second Coming of Age

A short story, “The Second coming of age” by adrik kemp

Set in a world exactly like our own, however if you are part of the LGBTIQ+ community, you go through a second puberty which imbues you with a superpower related to whichever letter you identify with. Lex is navigating the somewhat unexpected changes that fall upon them on a night out with their lover and friends.

On the heavier side, it is about the difficulty of self-identification when it collides with biological and societal demands. But on the light side, there are drag shows and superpowers.

An Amazon reviewer said “Adrik Kemp’s superhero tale where an alphabet of powers parallel the alphabet of sexualities is particularly enjoyable.

Read ‘The Second Coming of Age’ in the ‘Lightning Flash’ anthology from OUTStanding Stories.
