Here comes a list of books with LGBTQ+ rep in the order in which I read them. All the book covers below include alt-text
An amazing book with an all-black cast, badass female leads and important side characters who are a bi man, a gay man and a sapphic trans woman. In fact, the whole Broken Earth series has LGBTQ+ rep.
The main character is a bi woman, and if I'm not mistaken, there are other LGBTQ+ characters, but I read it a long time ago, so I don't remember the details. There is also a homophobic character who falls in love with a robot and has the robot change their pronouns to female in order to be comfortable having sex with them (the robot doesn't really have a gender). I've seen some readers upset by this, though I'm sure the author is neither homophobic nor transphobic — they are exploring our culture and biases. Authors don't always present their own views and ideas through their writing, they often engage with the themes that trouble them.
This book has a bisexual MC, and the whole Planetfall series has some LGBTQ+ characters. Each book can be read as a standalone too, so if you aren't particularly interested in this one, check out other novels from the series. Each of them is very different and unique, and they have some mental health representation too.
This brilliant book has a bi protagonist whose gender isn't revealed until the very end. Mind-bending, original, exciting and thought provoking — I loved it!
To be honest, this book wasn't for me, but I enjoyed its originality and humor. The main character is a lesbian, though her sexuality doesn't play a big role in the story.
One of my favorite and most imaginative books! There is a gender-fluid character who changes their physical appearance to represent their current gender with the help of technology. There are also LGBTQ+ characters in the sequel.
The protagonist is a lesbian. It's an original time travel story that poses questions about redemption, justice and human connection. The main character started as a villain, yet the author made me sympathize with her when she was dehumanized and treated with cruelty.
This book is full of LGBTQ+ characters — trans, non-binary, people in queer relationships, people using neopronouns or changing their pronouns, you name it! The main character is a trans woman. I enjoyed the book, even though I had a few issues with it.
One of the most original adult fantasy stories with an intersex aro/ace protagonist, many other LGBTQ+ characters, and an amazing, in-depth world-building.
This book has important lesbian and gay characters, and a couple of ace people, even though it might be subtle. It's a fun YA story with good mental health representation that was engrossing and easy to read.
This book holds a special place in my heart. It's a study of various cultures and ways of living, so, among this endless variety, you'll encounter polyamory, characters that use xe or they pronouns, species that change genders, and a sapphic romance will bloom between two characters. Other books from the Wayfarers series have LGBTQ+ characters too.
Velocity Weapon is the first book in the trilogy that engrossed me. There are key non-binary and gay characters. I had lots of fun reading the series!
