LGBTQ+ fantasy fiction ideas

LGBTQ+ fantasy fiction is getting more and more popular, whether it contains romance as a focus or LGBTQ+ themes and characters. Whether you want to incorporate a queer character or get inspiration for a whole book, these writing prompts will help.

With these ideas, I’ve tried to incorporate possibilities for aro/ace characters, non-binary characters, lesbian couplings, and more. I’ve tried to allow for polyamorous relationships too.

Any acknowledgement or credit for using any of my prompts is always appreciated, whether it’s linking to my website from yours or a social media shoutout.
