Originally posted by darkspirited1 at SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA
This comes from an article by rachelmanija entitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)

Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.

This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.

It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.

Gold in the air of summer
Author: cobalt_siren
Artist: doreah
Link To Art: here!!!
Word count: ~4,000
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Some language (and kissing? don't think that really needs a warning)
Disclaimer: Skins is property of E4 and Company Pictures. I do not own the characters or settings, and this story is not for profit.
Summary: Alo, Rich, Grace, and Mini go on an impromptu summer road trip after Alo fixes the van. Mini is dragged along, still feeling insecure in her new friendships, but gradually relaxing as they go to the seaside, get caught in the rain, and spend the night in a cabin. With Rich and Grace being very involved in each other, she spends some time getting to know Alo, and learning a bit about letting go and enjoying a little spontaneity in life. (Mainly gen Mini, with established Rich/Grace and a hint of Mini/Alo.)
Notes: Massive thanks to my beta prunesquallormd (I would never finish anything without you Si) and to my artist doreah for her encouragement and, of course, fabulous art.

Title: One of the Rotten Ones
Fandom: Glee
Pairing: Quinn/Santana
Genre: Angsty indie rock
Inspiration: Quinntana is my angst OTP for Glee.  In the process of reading and writing and thinking about Quinn and Santana, these songs collected in my head.  It's a not-so-happy mix about thwarted love, dependence, and slowly learning to trust again.  (Cross-posted to my tumblr, please reblog from there)
