Romance stories by LGBTQ+ writers

Hello!
As a part of the LGBTQ+ community, and considering it is pride month, I was hoping to support some of my fellow writers. It could be your own story or the story of another LGBTQ+ author.

At the moment my love for Romance has been overpowering the other genres hence I am looking for stories in this specific genre. But I am okay if it falls in other genres, as long as there is romance in the story. :heart: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I would love to recommend another favourite author of mine here on Wattpad!

Title: Practice Perfect
Link: Practice Perfect!
Blurb: Arlo Augustine tries to set his sister up with the perfect guy. The only catch is that she’s doing the same.

Life gets a little confusing for Arlo when “Golden Spoon” Kensington Cole arrives at school. Taking into account his own less than popular social status, Arlo already has a lot on his plate. Six practice dates will be the deciding factor for Arlo’s and Kensington’s happy ending. Will it provide them the opportunity they need to reach their individual, less than secret goals?

Between helping his sister get the guy while missing all the signs that point to his own romance, Arlo gets to learn about the ins and outs of love and life.

I think I fall into LGBT+ :rofl: not really sure, as I don’t really care, and I’m totally fine with not being heterosexual :rofl:

But does your Romance include friendship, bonding on “spiritual” level, and only fluffy stuff (blushing, realizing the fuzzy feeling in the stomach when you are with a certain person) but not going into fall in love phase (not until much later I suppose :rofl:) I’m not just a fan of the too strong romance genre.

But if that’s okay, I’m starting a slow-burn Teen-fic (out of my box).

A misstep during an altercation with her brother, finds Sofiel plummeting down from the heavens - alongside her wayward brother. The road to recovery is a long and treacherous one. But in her time spent in the mortal realm, Sofiel has borne witness to the many atrocities of humanity. Gradually, she loses faith.

And an angel who has lost their faith has all but one fate - to succumb and fall.

Enter Abigail Hope. A blessed mortal who is more to her than meets the eye. It’s not everyday one stumbles upon a battered celestial in a seedy alleyway, much less take them home and nurse them back to health like some injured animal.

But for the first time in a long time, Sofiel dares allow herself to hope.

This is my story. It’s a slow burn though.

Title: Mending The Broken in Ashton
Genre: Romance/General fiction (LGBT)
Link: https://www.wattpad.com/story/229927475-mending-the-broken-in-ashton

Blurb: Mentally ill high school teacher Charlie Brooks tries not to let an unpleasant childhood define him. While trying to save his pupils from ending up like him, more nightmares rear their ugly head. His reputation doesn’t do him any favors, as he’s been branded too peculiar, too skinny and too strange to fit in. He fears he is destined to wither away among the crippling loneliness that follows him like a shadow, and that ultimately, he cannot be saved.

For those like him, it seems impossible to find hope in small, conservative Ashton. However, hope does arrive in the form of a fellow colleague named Oliver, who is patient, caring and kind with him. But before he can appreciate that hope, Charlie spirals down into severe mental illness. Charlie and Oliver’s paths are set to intertwine and become fraught with challenges that will tempt them to take the easy way out. In particular, the denial and stigma surrounding the love he feels for his friend crushes Charlie from the inside.

It’s not like figuring out but more like I don’t care if I’m interested in sex or love (and since love has a thousand faces and forms, it’s not like I don’t know how to love, just that one form of love doesn’t interest me) :smiley:

And thank you :slight_smile: :heart:

Although it’s temporarily on hold, I’ve got one:

Title/Link/Cover:

Anyone But Her, New Adult Romance

photo-1548925381-2a3a1e6de301 (1) copy 2

Summary:

Wren Castile and Kenna Gold hated each other in high school. Now mature-ish adults, they still hate each other. The problem? They’re engaged. A year away from marriage, according to two of the most powerful people in the world–their parents.

Warnings/Ratings: It’s not currently marked Mature and I doubt I’ll change that for this version, but the adult in “new adult” could be considered strong.

I can’t copy all of that on my phone but I’m hoping @DavidEAnderson100 will swoop in and pitch his stuff :wink: His novel, Bright Midnight (marked mature), was recently featured as a Hidden Gem and The Art of Breathing Underwater (young adult) is a heartwarming, at times tearjerking, coming-out story based on his own experiences.

As for trigger warnings - the stories are a bit dark, they contain drug use and references to mental illness.

Are you all right with fantasy romance and some mature scenes? Because I have a lesbian fantasy/romance novella based on Greek mythology that you may find fits the bill. If you choose to read I hope you enjoy it! :heart: Btw I’m queer and non-binary so I basically specialize in LGBTQ+ fiction lol.

Nice project, I hope you’ll find what you want/need in this thread! :smiley:
Here is my story, slow burn, soft NA M/M romance:

Blurb:

Ethan was at the coffee shop’s counter when the man walked in.
Mr. Tall Long drink of water, I-know-I’m-irresistible with my smirk and my bedroom eyes.
But Ethan is not the kind of guy who’s going to faint at the first dazzling smile directed his way.
He likes to play it cool.
Unfortunately for him, all his plans fall apart when Aden makes him an offer he can’t - won’t - refuse. And Ethan will get more what he ever hoped to reap as he accepts the deal…

Sub Genres: Action, Thriller, LGBT.
Rating: Mature.

Promises are meant to be kept, but a promise to save a beloved sister leads a group of high school magical girls into a dream of many literary landscapes. Out of this dream of Carroll’s wonderlands and Poe’s nightmares comes a monster that threatens to invade the waking world. Their promise forms the opening act of a play they can’t stop, so to prevent this monster’s debut into their world, they must play their parts to the end at all hazards to their lives. If you love quirky magical girls, bloodthirsty femme fatales, fight scenes, love scenes, twisty plot lines, fantastic settings, the possibility of dreams, and the uncertainty of nightmares, this story is for you.
