Build better queer characters 🌈

Hi friend! I’m experimenting with a new, more minimalistic format for this newsletter. Let me know if you like it or not :)
It’s Pride Month, so I thought I’d share GLAAD’s Where We Are on TV report, which analyzes the overall diversity and number of LGBTQ characters in TV series.
In addition, here’s a list of great movies and TV shows you can watch to learn more about the issues that the LGBTQ+ community is facing. Educating yourself will not only allow you to become a better ally but also build better, more compelling queer characters in your stories.
If you need more inspiration, Insider published this list of groundbreaking LGBTQ+ characters last year.
Last but not least, this excellent blog post will teach you how to build good queer characters in your stories.
Most important advice: “Give Them Plots That Aren’t Completely About Their Sexuality.”

Did you enjoy this issue? Yes No
