Today’s topic comes from QSFer Tammy Jenkins: “How about a discussion thread that looks at successful books/series/TV programs in heterosexual literature/entertainment that is either not being written in the LGBTIA or is underwritten in the LGBTIA or has yet to be done successfully. For the sake of this conversation, I will call this topic, Where is ours? Cyberpunk, Time Travel, Serious Sci Fi?”
Let’s start with Time Travel stories. There have been some great mainstream sci fi tales, going all the way back to HG Wells and The Time Machine to more modern takes like The Time Traveler’s Wife.
So are there any good time travel stories in LGBT sci fi? We’ll take MM romance tales, but I’d especially like to know about stories where the focus is on the science and the implications, not on romance.
And what ideas do you have for new stories that might shed light on the LGBT community through the device of time travel?
