- LGBT literature
LGBT literature is an all encompassing term for
literatureproduced by people who are lesbian, gay, bisexualor transgender, or which involves characters, plot lines or themes concerning this community.
Lesbian literature, gay pulp and gay science fictionare genres of LGBT fiction which represent some of the earliest incorporation of these " taboo" subjects in contemporary literature. Novels like "La Garçonne" by Victor Margueritte(1922) and " The Well of Loneliness" by Radclyffe Hall(1928) are early examples of books with lesbian themes.
LGBT authors, characters and themes are present in all genres of literature, but the increasing amount of LGBT fiction emerging in recent years has established several (if unofficial) subgenres, including LGBT mystery, horror and romance, as well as gay teen and
lesbian teen fictionand humor handbooks.
