Where are some good places to read queer sci fi short stories?

I'm not looking for fan fic or GOT style fantasy, but actual space or dystopia short stories that either have a narrator or society that is less rigidly heteronormative. I'm not really looking for erotica either (the odd scene is fine but i'd like some actual plot). Where is the lesbian JG Ballard or Philip K Dick?
I'm completely open to blogs and e-books if you have recommendations, and I like short stories at least as much as full novels. I'm not getting much joy from browsing books in brick and mortar bookshops and without knowing some authors I'm not sure where to start. Random suggestions are fine, you've had some great left-field ideas in the past.
Second related question: is there anywhere that discusses this sort of thing, any online communities or scenes? Again, not really looking for 'What if Data and Jordi had sex?' which I am aware there is plenty of, I'm more interested in original ideas than subversion of existing heteronormative stories. I know this stuff exists but I'm not sure where to find it.
