At Read Diverse Books, I focus on lifting voices of as many marginalized groups as possible. I genuinely enjoy this work and will happily do it for as long as I am able. But promoting and uplifting the voices of so many different groups means that sometimes I forget to read the stories that reflect my unique life experiences. In particular, I have neglected to read much gay fiction in 2016.
Reading gay fiction that is written by gay authors has always been my preference, though I sometimes enjoy the stories written by straight authors. But there’s something about LGBTQ+ #ownvoices fiction that resonates with me in particular because I find the voice more authentic, personal, and relatable.
