#OWNVOICES: Gay Authors

On Saturdays on the QSF Facebook group, we’re now doing an #ownvoices day. Each week, we’ll feature a different group of writers who don’t get the attention they should.

Today, we’re featuring authors who are gay and who write gay characters in speculative fiction. #ownvoices

If you’re a gay author, tell us about yourself, your experiences as an author, and the spec fic books you write (especially those with gay characters – with links, please).

If you’re not, you can still participate – share your favorite gay authors and their spec fic works that include gay characters.

Note: This is NOT a chat to list any work that includes a character who is gay. All linked titles should be written by gay authors.

Please treat each other with respect in this chat. If you see a post which doesn’t seem to fit the spirit of this #ownvoice chat, please let me or Angel Martinez or Ben Brock or Ryane Chatman know so we can contact them and gently let them know. 🙂

  1. Hello! This category totally fits me! I am a QPOC author who writes fantasy/urban fantasy, sci-fi, and horror stories with gay POC characters. This is an intersectionality that I find is lacking representation in the media. I want to bring attention to QPOC characters in these genres because we deserve space! When we get upset at our exclusion, we’re told to make our own space and not to expect it to be made for us, so that’s what I’m doing! I don’t have many readers, if any, so it”s just sitting out there in the ether, waiting for the right people to find it!
