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.”
If you were to write about a gender or sexuality other than your own and you wanted the character to be well-rounded and respectful of X-person’s experience, where and how would you gather information? Share your favorite sources of information and methods for getting into your characters’ heads when they are not like you.
Because this deals in generalities, it does have the potential to be a hot button topic, so please keep the chat respectful.
