"Heaventide" by K J Kabza

Fantasy and Science Fiction, November/December 2012

Daybreak-Under-Clouds is in a quandary.  In her world if you consort with a traveler, you're a woman.  If you travel, you must be a man.  You can't do and be both.  After catching her consorting, her grandmother consigns Daybreak to womanhood.  Still, with the traveler's aid, Daybreak continues to attempt travel, building a boat and going where she ought not to.  When she's caught for the last time, there's really only one choice left.

A story about triumphing over those who would stamp the fluidity of gender.
