K, back to the query box. But ya, BEGGING YOU for my LGBTQ+ #HistoricalFiction (#HF) 😉 #MSWL

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · Jun 29

I see SO MUCH WWI and WWII plots. GIVE ME LGBTQ+! What happened to nurses who smuggle jews from concentration camps and fall in love? What about soldiers on the front lines who turn lovers? I WANT THEM. This includes Trans characters #MSWL

@MandyHubbard Me too! Contemp protags on the Ace spectrum are def high on my MSWL (so Grey-Ace and Demisexual too)

Ace rep in contemporary* YA is still at the top of the #MSWL. When it comes to demi-/grey-/ace/aro, pretty much all I see in my inbox is still SF/F.

*also realistic genres (historical, mystery, etc) and magical realism

"Contemporary #YA about a f/f or m/m couple. Something fun and sweet—not an issues-heavy coming out story.” @msmariavicente #MSWL

Replying to @chelseasfiction

I am also looking for a transgender family story--a family going through a child's transition or a child with a transgender parent #MSWL #AskAgent I'm sure the list could go on. lol

Agents, I'm expanding the types of books I'm acquiring! If you have any #ownvoices LGBTQ+ mainstream fiction or memoir books, please send them my way! #MSWL

I was telling my roommate that I hope to get an influx of #ownvoices & #LGBTQ+ queries in my inbox after coming out on twitter the other day.

She looked at me with a shit-eating grin and said: "I think you mean QUEERies"
I told her to go stand in the Pun Shame Corner.

Beth celebrated Boston #pride a couple weeks ago with this badass sign. AND here is your reminder that many agents on #TeamBookEnds are actively seeking #LGBTQ & #ownvoices representation across the genres! #query #mswl

I'd love to see more YA books of all genres and subgenres with lesbian MCs. Many people before me have pointed this out, but I feel like the balance of LGBT YA is definitely skewed more towards gay boy MCs than anything else. #MSWL

“Cute queer contemporary romances, like EVERYTHING LEADS TO YOU or SIMON VS THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA” @kurestinarmada #MSWL

Kelly @LitAgentKelly · Jun 6

#MSWL I'd like to state for the record that I am still looking for, and will always be looking for, diverse perspectives, authors, characters, cultures, and environments in manuscripts and books. This includes POC, LGBTQIA+, genderfluid, neurodiverse, and all the other categories

YA Pride @YA_Pride

QRT with the LGBTQIAP+ book of your dreams 📚💖

(This can be published, unpublished, a WIP, or just an idea that you wish someone would write!)

Also! Also! A happy queer YA love story with lots of sizzle. Any genre. I want a couple I can ship and then I want that ship to sail. And let them both live happily ever after--I don't want a Clexa situation here, my friends #MSWL
