Writing Gay Characters

On a community forum I belong to, a member recently posted this excellent article on writing gay characters.

While this certainly isn’t the end-all-be-all of writing gay characters, I think it certainly covers most of the major bases, as much as any article could. I think many of the points also apply to successfully writing minority characters in general (be they women, POCs, LGBTQs, etc.). The most important being that we’re three-dimensional people first and most of us don’t define ourselves by our orientation or other minority status.

In any event, have a gander.
