Now, I've been out of the loop for a while so there may be a pocket of books somewhere with gay characters, but I'm just wondering what the industry standpoint on this is. Would it be possible to publish a book with a main character who was gay in the sci-fi fantasy genre? Or would no publisher/agent touch such a thing?
Thanks for your time.
Anne Rice made a living with gay and/or bisexual vampires and was very explicit in her depictions.
I'm sure you'll do fine with whatever characters you create provided they are intriguing and drawn well on the page.
