Romantic/Sexual Orientation

As the majority of queer lit is about alloromantic, allosexual gay or lesbian characters, those are not listed here; just look at any of the other pages to find them.

Where romantic and sexual orientations differ, it has been noted. Demi classifications are listed on their own for ease of discovery. In some fantasy cases, where a label would not realistically be used, I’ve followed the label used by the author to describe the character.

LI/MS = character with this orientation does not have a POV but is a love interest/major secondary

Queer

These are books in which either:

  1. the MC specifically self-labels as queer or
  2. the character is explicitly attracted to people of multiple genders in at least one case but does not use a label (including “straight”)
