What this genre means to me?

For me this genre has been home. I’ve finally found a place where I’m accepted fully, genderqueer and all. I’ve made so many friends, and found a ton of people who are like me. Something I’ve never experienced before. For awhile I actually thought there was no one else who felt the way I did. I’m so happy to be able to share my words with our community. Thank you to all the readers, fans, writers, and blogger who keep this going.

What does this genre mean to me?

Gay romance has let me finally see happy endings for myself that mainstream media never provided. The comedic, fluffy, or low-angst stories that simply didn't exist a decade ago are cropping up now as more M/M books are published, subgenres form and flourish, and more people join our community. The growth in authorship and readership is beyond exciting to witness firsthand.

Challenging the status quo has never been an easy or comfortable task, and “ally” is often seen as a noun, not a verb. Those of you who act on your convictions have helped change the world for the better, and this gives me hope.

And, most important to me, the friends I've made in this community have inspired me and reached out to me when I needed it, and have pushed me to be a better writer, a better friend, and a better man.

What does this genre mean to me?
This genre and this community form a place to meet kindred spirits and read the books that I thought for many years there were too few of. We have it all in our genre, from beloved tropes to almost every sub-genre under the sun, there is something for everyone.  Every UK Meet (or any meet-up with writers/reviewers/readers), I come away with positive memories, ideas, and energy. And a feeling that this is where I belong :)

What does this genre mean to me?

For me this community is a safe place where I know I can acknowledge who I am and be myself without fear or judgement. It is friends that I rarely see but I know will be there for me anyway. There are no strangers, only friends-in-waiting. Sharing the love is so much more than a ‘like’ or ‘share’, it’s offers of assistance from people you’ve never met, and a bottomless pool of advice and experience. It’s people to love and laugh with, and many shoulders to share the anger and sadness. As a writer, it provides support, and encouragement to continue. As a reader, it provides a passport to times, places and experiences, and I want a stamp on every page.

What this genre means to me?
I started reading LGBT romance in 2012, long before I knew what this community would come to mean to me. I discovered LGBT romance while in the process of coming out to myself, and being able to read those happy endings made me feel much more confident that I would find a happy ending of my own. It wasn't until I became an author that I truly connected with the community, and it's a community that has made me feel so very welcome, right from the start. I know that I have an entire community to support and help me in a number of ways, just as I would support and help them. I've made so many life-long friends through this community, and for that, I am incredibly grateful.

What does this genre mean to me?
"I’ve been part of this genre and community for seven years now, and I’ve watched it grow so much. I feel protective of my fellow authors, and my readers, and it is important to me to stay true to my first love; writing gay MM romances with a happy ever after. I’ve seen some highs, and some lows, but in the end I am happy in my own little corner of the genre, with my cup of tea and some cake."

What does this genre mean to me?

Our genre is like a large, unruly family. I love the diversity, the different opinions, the different styles of writing, the different types of stories. I love that, when things get tough, we band together (for the most part). I love that, when one of our own is in need, people step up and do what they can to help. When my husband was ill, I never felt alone, not with this amazing community. You all came with me on that dark and terrible journey and helped me get through to the other side. Sure, we have our squabbles and our scandals, but in the face of the scary, uncertain times we now live in, we will help each other through.

What does this genre mean to me?
Knowing I have a place I am accepted, that I can openly explore the different types and aspects of love means this is a home I never truly expected to have. Genderfluid, bisexual—different—was never acceptable when I was younger. It was hidden behind hands, referred to with euphemisms, if it wasn’t being outright attacked. I’m so thrilled to know that I’m not alone, that there are others out there like me—as frightening a proposition as that might be *wink*—and that we all just want to see the world accept us, our partners, and our way of life.  This genre and the community surrounding it is an amazing, loving, welcoming and ever-growing place and I count myself lucky to be part of it.

What does this genre mean to me?

Since I began writing/reading in this genre I've met so many wonderful people, many of whom I've had the pleasure of meeting in real life. Writing is a lonely business at times, and the online friends I've made not only keep me sane, but also help me improve as an author. As a genre, the willingness of people to help and support each other amazes me at times.
I feel lucky to be a part of this community.

What does this genre mean to me?

I often get asked this question and I think at this point it has come to mean what I want from life in general: happiness, hope, freedom, a chance to live life as we choose. I started writing MM Romance in 2014 and I've seen a tremendous change, some good, some not so good. But one thing I know is that I've met and fostered friendships with some amazing people. People I consider friends I can count on not only in the book world but in the "real" world with all its craziness. So this genre has meant friendship and love.
