Diverse, Entertaining, and Thought Provoking: Queer Stories for All Readers

For me there are two main kinds of books with queer characters: those where queerness plays an integral role in the story and those where no one in the book bats an eye at a character’s queerness. Both are tremendously important. The first so that we can tell stories about our culture, how we got to where we are now, and the problems that we have and continue to face. The second kind of book is more like a look into the future that we are currently building - one where being queer is normal and without stigma.
