Partially transposed from my Tumblr and edited.
This was originally written for my friends who were willing to try out BL but didn’t want to wade through all the shitty ones with terrible consent problems. I mainly enjoy romantic fluff in which the couple gets together within the first few pages and then spend the rest of the manga being domestic. There are some exceptions (like plot-oriented BL), but mainly that’s what you’ll see here.
If you want actual, true-to-life representation of queer folks in manga, please check out the other rec list. If you’re also interested in GL, I also have a separate list for that.
Moved from my Tumblr to here. Since Tumblr’s format doesn’t really make for good long-term posts.
As in, series that aren’t published in yaoi/yuri magazines, for lesbian or gay characters, and any series with bisexual/trans/intersex characters. (I have a separate rec list for BL, and one for GL as well.) And by “bisexual” I mean any character who explicitly identifies as bisexual. None of this “you’re the only guy/girl I’ve fallen in love with” — these situations do happen, yes, but they aren’t really great bisexual representation.
I will try to focus on series that gives these LGBTQI+ character ample screentime, all the while not invalidating their identity, and actually allowing them some possibility of romance (if they so desire).
