Some say that all the possibilities operating at this moment create an attractor in the future that draws all of us inexorably toward what we will be. As the books on this list indicate, that attractors is massively LGBTQ+. Today we celebrate LGBTQ science fiction. Here’s more from BuzzFeed:
[In the Seep by Chana Porter], the Seep are alien entities that connect everything and everyone. Their primary purpose in visiting Earth is to help spread joy and happiness by letting everyone decide who and what they want to be. Trina Goldberg-Oneka is a trans Native American woman who deeply understands what it means to want to change. She at first lives happily under the Seep’s influence with her wife, Deeba. However, when Deeba decides she wants to be reborn as an infant again to start life over, Trina has a breakdown. She goes on a quest to better understand the Seep and its most vocal advocates, but nothing can fill the void that Deeba left. This surreal novel is perfect for readers looking for something unlike anything else they’ve ever read.
