Allot of people always ask me why I tend to write more Gay Fiction than anything else and I don’t usually have a reply for them although usually it’s more because I don’t want to reply to them, it’s my choice – right? I can write what I want without people having ask why – right?
Recently I went to see the April Ashley exhibit in the Liverpool Museum and it was fascinating completely fascinating whilst I was there my dad asked me why I enjoyed learning about LGBT issues and LGBT culture and I had really nothing to reply, he then asked me if I had a point to get across when I write and I thought more into that.
I began writing Gay Fiction when I was fourteen, then I didn’t have a point to get across I was more just experimenting with writing different characters and different perspectives but as I’ve grown older and became thinking more in-depth about my writing.
My point is usually that you should feel good about yourself no matter what (I know very Disney Channel Original Movie) I like to write people conquering things or growing in confidence. Recently I’ve branched out and began writing different kind of people and I always find it interesting researching finding real peoples point of views, finding real peoples experiences and real events that have happened.
I’d like to also put forward that I don’t just write Gay Porn. If there’s a sex scene within my book there is usually a reason for it and sometimes it can be as simple as the characters love each other.
I decided to take some stats due to peoples presumptions.
Overall I found I had more straight characters within my books than Gay characters. Of course when you put it into a graph of the Gay Main Characters against Straight (Bisexual and Asexual) Main Characters
The numbers explain enough. But I will never stop writing Gay characters until I want to stop, I will continue to do what I want to without having to explain it to people.
