Here’s a couple of the authors I’ve read & loved.
- Born in New Mexico
- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe: ultimate gay teenage summer-vibe romance (both Mexan-American)
- The Inexplicable Logic of My Life: YA with the most kind-hearted gay, hispanic dad character that possibly ever existed
- Also has a lot of contemporary more adult LGBT fiction, which I didn’t realize before now
- Asian-American, cofounded http://www.diversityinya.com/ with Cindy Pon (Silver Phoenix)
- Ash: lesbian YA romance, retelling of Cinderella
- Also written “Huntress”, “Adaption” and “Inheritance”
- “When the moon was ours” is on my TBR this month, with a romance between a queer Latina girl and a trans Pakistani-American boy. I only found out now that her husband is also transgender!
- “Wild beauty” is also a book I’ve been wanting to read. It has a Latina bisexual girl as main character and genderqueer side characters.
- Puerto Rican
- “What if it’s us”: cute romance with gay guys
- “They both die at the end”: two latino characters where one guy is bisexual and the other gay
- “History is all you left me”: three gay/queer guys and lots of crying I predict, which is why I haven’t read it yet
- I just read and fell in love with “Running with lions” this month. It’s centered around a inclusive football team where so many of the guys are bi/gay, one of them Pakistani muslim, and the main character Sebastian Hughes is bi
There’s so many more authors I want to read books from like Claire Kann, Natasha Ngan & Sabina Khan. The TBR is just tooo long sometimes!!! It’s exciting, but also so many books to get to.
Also I fell down the rabbit hole of googling whether inuits and sami people were defined as ‘people of colour’, just to find Frozen-debates dominating the google-searches, so if anyone have the answer that would be great. Here in Europe the racism is often based on ethnic groups, which is just as bad, but less confusing on where the lines of distinction are drawn.
Let me know if you’ve read any of these books and if you liked them! Please link your post if you’re participating so I see it and recommend any LGBTQ books you’ve loved.
