Nationality/Tribal Affiliation

In the US and want to get right to shopping, help support the site, and help indie bookstores? Please check out the LGBTQReads Bookshop!

Please note that nationalities listed refer to countries of a character, poet, essayist, or memoir author’s descent; they may be of any generation within. In the case of second-world fantasy novels, they may refer to the inspiration of the setting, particularly in the cases where the author is of that background.

(LI/MS = Love Interest/Major Secondary, which have been included only in cases where the author shares a background with that character)
