I saw a post that it would be nice to have a list, maybe with links and I'd be willing to update it and all that stuff. I am not really UTD on all things LGBTQ so it's going to be  a joint effort. I'll save the next couple of posts for updating. Maybe we can seperate individual books and then the series books. Someone did this in the paranormal forum.

So lets find those books!

Not familiar with Mercedes Lackey but, i would assume if books have gay characters or plots they would be listed.
