LGBT+ rep in books

hi, weirdfangirl here,

Sorry for the drought of posts. This is a post I started a while back but everything got deleted so I couldn’t post it. But now I’m back, re-writing it, and hoping to get a steady stream of posts going. The Good Omens rant is dead, but I might do something else on it in the future. So here are some of the best examples of LGBT+ representations in books that I’ve seen. Fell free to leave your own examples in the comments.


Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse books:

  • Kaz and Inej are both asexual and in a relationship
  • Jesper is bisexual
  • So is Nina
  • Wylan is gay
  • So is Kuwei
  • Jesper and Wylan are in a relationship
  • Nikolai is implied to be bisexual/pansexual/omnisexual

Linsey Miller’s Mask of Shadows Duology:

  • Sal is genderfluid
  • Elise is bisexual/pansexual

Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens:

  • Angel’s and demons don’t have gender or sex, only represent them
  • Crowley and Aziraphale are in love
  • God is a woman*
  • Beelzebub is played by a woman and androgynous*
  • Pollution is non binary
  • Archangel Michael is played by a woman*

*This is in the show not the book, but I thought I’d include it anyway

Next post should be up next week.





I'm listening to the audiobook of The Cruel Prince by Holly Black and one of the main characters Vivienne is bisexual. I have only listened to about a third of it so far so there might be more queer representation to come.

I know you've added a spoiler warning, but please add spoiler tags for their sexuality.
