I’ve written gay characters into all my books – not because they are gay but because they are interesting characters, much as, I hope, the rest of my characters are. They are rounded characters living normal lives who just happen to love the person they love. And this is a brilliant post, Sacha – interesting and informative. As an author – thank you.J
After my rant last week about the lack of LGBT characters in mainstream fiction, I thought I really ought to make some kind of suggestion as to what the differences are, (and there aren’t many) in order to help writers who want to write LGBT characters but haven’t plucked up the courage yet.
I really did have to rack my brain to find something useful to say because there isn’t much. We are human just like the rest of the world. For those looking for tips on writing gay male characters, I’m not going to be helpful in this post. I’ve stuck to what I know…lesbians.
