Terrible Queer Characters

Well of Loneliness

Today’s topic comes from QSFer Amanda Clay: “We’ve talked about really good queer representation in sf/f, how about really bad? What are the worst queer characters and story lines you have ever had to suffer through”

You know, the ones that are so stereotypically over-the-top gay. Your limp-wristers. Your comically bad evil gay villains. Your “doomed to the pits of hell” 50’s lesbians. Your really bad men in drag passing as transgender folks. Your invisible bi characters.

We can mine TV, film, and literature for this one.

And have you written any that, looking back, you just kinda go “ick”?

Do your worst.
