Saying YES to Gay YA

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.

So begins a journey for two authors who decide to stand up and fight for what they know is right.

Say Yes to Gay YA,  is an article written by authors Rachel Manija Brown and Sherwood Smith and featured on the Genreville Blog at Publishers  Weekly.

I believe this is an important issue that we as writers need to address.

I encourage all of you to read the article in its entirety and join the discussion.

Thanks;

Gwen McIntyre
