Queer Speculative Poetry recommendations

As you may know, I am putting together a Queer chapbook with work from Stone Telling (including the queer issue) to launch at Wiscon. One of the contributors to Stone Telling 7 and the queer chapbook, Dominik Parisien, is asking:

Just out of curiosity, have you considered including a brief “Recommended Reading” section in the chapbook regarding queer poems that have appeared in other magazines? This could expose readers to other great queer poems they might not otherwise discover.

This is a GREAT idea. To that end, I would appreciate it if you could please help me with specific titles of queer speculative/sff work. I already know about the queer work of Sonya Taaffe, Jeannelle Ferreira, Adrienne J. Odasso, and Catherynne M. Valente (including work not reprinted in the Moment of Change, but would appreciate pointers to anything else, especially but not limited to work that appeared in 2011-2012.

(Sorry I wasn’t clear before, but really looking for spec rather than literary, here).
