For Writers: Magic and Sexual Orientation

gay mage magic

Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Elizabeth Barrette:

How magic relates to sexual orientation — because just as there have been traditions that paired male and female, there have been a few that favored homosexuality instead.

I’m gonna run with this a little, and suggest that we talk about how the two can be intertwined in our writing. We’ve all read the “he’s part of the magical bloodline” stories. And I’m sure there are already authors out there who are intertwining the two.

So my questions today: Which stories have you read where magic is rooted in or connected to sexual orientation? And what other ways can we as writers explore this idea?
