Writing More Diversity

diversity

For Writers:

Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Angel Martinez:

“How are you challenging yourselves to write more diverse fiction?”

For my own part, I have started to stretch myself, writing characters other than young gay men. I’ve writte a couple trans characters, lesbian characters, and bi characters.

But diversity extends beyond the LGBTIQA spectrum. We also need older characters, characters of color, characters with disabilities, and more.

So to ask Angel’s question again: “How are you challenging yourselves to write more diverse fiction?”

  1. After I came out a few years ago I started writing GLBT characters. If I write about an ethnic group I do my research. I’ve written several Latino characters who were influenced by people I’ve known over the years.
