Below are recent posts to anEditor’s Blog of the-freelance-editor that are likely to be of specific interest to LGBTQAI+ writers and readers. the-gay-editor (formerly theGayEditor) has decided to pull them into a separate list so they are easier to locate and so you can feel comfortable knowing that you have a place where your writing will be respected and appreciated.
the-gay-editor is truly passionate about helping writers to share stories from, for, and with the gay community—and, by the way, when we say gay, we are using the word’s older generic form of inclusion, to mean all levels and variations of queerness: gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT / LGBT) persons, as well as those who identify more as queer or intersex or asexual or transitional, in addition to anyone who is questioning and/or an ally—because that community has so, so many stories to share.
With these posts, we hope to reassure readers, and writers, that a more passionate, more open-minded, more energetic, more creative, more understanding community does exist—even amidst the judgment and persecution that can sometimes be more obvious.
Enjoy the information . . .

Creating an LGBTQQAI+ literary culture
With his lastest post for the Los Angeles Review of Books, writer Michael Nava concludes a three-part exploration into LGBTQ+ writing—as well as reading and publishing—with a look into a time when materials have become more widely available, when readers are growing more particular and more segmented, and when the tone of information seems to be changing directions and intensities…
