Staff Pick Award at SXSW 2020: 'VERT' by Kate Cox. Hiding the smallest of idiosyncrasies for that long requires an impressive amount of effort, but locking away the core of one identity would be a herculean task. On the night of their 20th anniversary, however, Emelia discovers a deeply hidden secret about her husband identity through a pair of VR glasses, buried inside of him since before the two met.
