Books Needed

My goal for this database is to include a wide range of queer representation in the science fiction and fantasy genres, including queer representation that intersects with other identities. I want everyone to be able to find a protagonist that reflects them! That said, I haven’t found books for every intersection. Here are some areas where I would love to find more books (for each of these, I either have no books or very few books). If you know of any books that fit, please comment!
