I read articles like this and I find it baffling that anyone could ask me why I'd ever want to write something with an LBGT action-hero main character who does not die at the end. Maybe because someone has to, considering the crap that's out there. And I'm not saying I should be the only one, nor that I'd be an expert or write the best one ever, only that I don't want the people who are writing (something other than dead gay celibate characters) to be alone in the wilderness. Because articles like that one really piss me the hell off.

Pardon; edited repost

And of course I read this when I am trying to get to sleep. Even so, thank you. This is useful food for thought. Makes me want to write and eventually try for publication.

After a certain point I was just cheering for the ones in the list who get shuffled out of the series WITHOUT being murdered in a sexually sadistic manner.

That's really just an astonishing list (partly because I had no idea some of those series would have lasted this long!).

On a slightly more positive note,
