Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

2024 LGBTQ+ Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge

2024 LGBTQ+ Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge

The 2024 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. Written by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer authors,
  2. Explore LGBTQ+ themes, or
  3. Feature LGBTQ+ characters.

Author repeats are admissible.

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 (now defunct) 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.
