Hey I would like to get some advice on how to make a good representation of LGBT+ people. I’m new to Wattpad, currently working on a story that has LGBT+ characters, but I don’t want to mess it up with representing them with my characters.
All that I know from the LGBT+ people is that they want to be represented as normal people.
I have this planned side plots with my characters. Two trying to be normal, but have other people bother them with knowing about their personal lives. One character being too closed off to tell someone they have a hidden romantic feelings. Lastly one that had a horrible breakup with someone due to a traumatic incident in their past that lead to him having a hard time moving on.
Those are some characters that I know are part of the LGBT+ and asking for advice on the matter. I’m someone that isn’t in the community but would like to know from those that are for any guidance. So anything helps.
