Mass-market publishing can’t seem to quit the straight, stale, male, and pale. As the entertainment landscape evolves and expands, where do LGBTQIA writers fit in to this limited narrative? How are we pushing it forward? Will we ever fully leave the kids table—either at conferences, on bookshelves, movies or TV? Where are we making the most progress? JOIN NYT-bestselling authors Dhonielle Clayton (The Belles) and Mackenzi Lee (Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue) plus erotic romance author Harper Miller (Ironic), YA author Heidi Heilig (The Girl from Everywhere), gay romance author Damon Suede (Lickety Split) and moderator Emily Jordan (Salon) as they discuss the ways queer writers are not only setting the tone, but also raising the bar when it comes to story, style and scope in genre fiction and beyond.
