Question #1: How do you identify?
Question #2: What are some of your favourite LGBTQIA+ books and authors?
Seanan McGuire, Adam Silvera
Question #3: How often do you talk about LGBTQIA+ books on your blog, and what posts of yours would you recommend people start with, if they’re looking for LGBTQIA+ content?
I don't really because there really aren't that many books out there about asexuals. I just DNFed a book that had the word but there were two shitty cracks made about it. The Wayward Children series is good. I'm dying to read Tash Hearts Tolstoy. I need to find more. I really enjoyed April Daniels Dreadnought series. The main character is a lesbian trans girl. More Happy Than Not is heartbreaking.
Question #4: Who are your favorite LGBTQIA+ booktubers?
Problems Of A Book Nerd, www.youtube.com/channel/UCxpblEpEj5synu03E6yjyyA Peter Likes Books, www.youtube.com/user/Benjaminoftomes Benjamin Of Tomes
Question #5 (suggested by Jessie of Cup of Books): When was the first time you encountered an LGBTQIA+ character in fiction?
I'm not totally sure so I have more than one answer. I think there was a lesbian on an episode of The Golden Girls. I think she was in love with Rose. There's Leon on Roseanne. There are Carol and Susan on Friends. I'm not sure if Ellen was a lesbian on Ellen but I do think one of her friends on that show was on Friends working with Monica who both slept with the guy who said he hadn't had any in a few years. Of course there's Tara on Buffy who was probably the first that was more than a character that just popped up here and there. Weirdly I didn't watch Will & Grace much but I did watch that too. Thursdays were very busy.
Question #6:Anything else you want to add? And who do you tag?
If you read this post consider yourself tagged. Also in the comments recommend a book or an author. I do have a list of books I've read this year for the www.ficgal.com/reading-a-to-z-challenge.html A to Z Challenge. I do mention books that have asexual characters. Solitaire by Alice Oseman.
