This database aims to collect and feature queer science fiction and fantasy books to assist readers in finding the representation they seek.
To find queer/LGBTQIAP+ SFF books, please check off the desired boxes, and entries meeting all those categories will appear once you hit search!
How to Use the Search
When you select multiple categories, the system searches for books at the intersection of those categories. For instance, if you check off both “fantasy” and “WLW” the results will be stories that are both categorized as “fantasy” and “WLW.”
