FOR WRITERS: Writing Good Lesbian Characters

Lesbian Couple - 123rf


Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Denise Dechene:

“Not really a question but LGBTQI+ encompasses a wide range of sexual identities. Reading gives us some of them but what about a day or days identifying them and explaining and discussing ways to incorporate them into books?”

OK, so lets kick this off. We’ll devote a day each over the next few months talking about writing different types of characters across the LGBTIQA spectrum.

Given that each of us is human, there’s no one “right” way to write a lesbian character. But maybe we can tackle this from a different direction?

What are the common mistakes made when writing lesbian characters? And what questions about them do our writers have who may want to tackle one in the future?
