In the same vein...someone please send me queer Midsommar. As my brilliant coworker @jruoxichen pointed out, the plot SHOULD have been: "Florence Pugh rejects mediocre man and joins Scandinavian lesbian collective to sing crop rites and do craft." I need it. #mswl

SEND ME QUEER HORROR PROJECTS. I've got a personal soft spot for bi protagonists (because...hi), but I'm looking for horror characters/stories from every part of the LGBTQ+ community. Give me characters grappling with sexuality/gender and ALSO monsters #mswl

Countdown #MSWL Day 2:

Queer rep for days especially by authors of color.

I'd love a rom-com, a story that follows queer teens having to stick together, and stories where queer characters get a happy ending.

If you are a BIPOC or LGBTQ+ author, I want to see your stories. Give me your amazing words and diverse characters.

Queer f/f, nb/nb, or f/nb rom comsโ€”noticing a very rainbow-hued pattern hereโ€”with all and any trope for the lady and non-binary lovahhhs.

In the YA realm, Iโ€™m really only looking for queer stories, whatever genre right now. Gimme your witches, sisters, weird families, romances, & intersectional feminists kicking ass mkay thanks.

Iโ€™m on the hunt for an MG contemporary, that, well, just makes me want to snuggle the book in a huge hug. I want feels, vulnerability, small towns, queer identities, feminism, first crushes, unique families, & kids of color, girls, and non-binary kids taking on the world.

As always with this time of year, send me all your witches. Iโ€™d love an adult or gothic, adult horror, and/or adult light fantasy with an unforgettable & unique setting, a fresh take or system of magic, and gorgeous writing. Queer always a plus.

I'd love to rep a queer magical school book (or any magical school book). Would love to undo some of the harm done by She Who Must Not be Named. #MSWL

The BIGGEST take away here should be to send me gooey love stories set in non-Western places, that have diverse characters, and any pairingโ€”m/m, f/f, f/m. I just really want my heart to swoon when I read.
