Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

2019 LGBTQ Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge

2019 LGBTQ Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge

The 2019 LGBTQ Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge seeks to promote diversity and expand horizons amongst readers and writers of speculative fiction.

Read and review books that either:

  1. Are written by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer authors,
  2. Explore LGBTQ themes, or
  3. Feature LGBTQ characters.

Author repeats are admissable.

Remember that we have the LGBTQ Speculative Fiction Resource List here on WWEnd. It is our own resource for finding great LGBTQ books. The books on the list primarily feature Lambda Literary and Gaylactic Spectrum Award winners and nominees. Another list put together by one of our members is on her blog, and it features a well researched list of authors self-identifying on the LGBTQIA spectrum. It can be found here.
