Sense8 - Nomi and Amanita

No Man of Woman Born by Ana Mardoll

No Man of Woman Born (look at that gorgeous cover art!) is an amazing collection of fantasy short stories by Ana Mardoll. It deals with gender-related prophecies and is beautifully written.

"Tangled Nets": non-binary protagonist with xie/xer pronouns
"King's Favor": non-binary protagonist with nee/ner pronouns
"His Father's Son": trans male protagonist
"Daughter of Kings": trans female protagonist
"Early to Rise": genderfluid protagonist switching between she, he and they
"No Man of Woman Born": questioning protagonist + character with they/them pronouns + character with kie/kir pronouns
"The Wish-Giver": trans female protagonist

As you can see, a variety of gender identities are represented. "Early to Rise" was my favourite story. <3
