    Hey, I've been reading LitRPGs for a while and I'm a little addicted, but I'm having trouble finding ones that don't have female harems or similar (except for Dungeon Core books). Are there any good ones with gay main characters, or even gay harems? I don't honestly mind if there's erotica or not, I really just want characters that are relatable to me!

    The themes of the book can be anything, but my favourites are urban fantasy, magic, anthro, superpowers, and sci fi. If anyone can cram all those puppies together with gay main characters, I will love you for it!

    My recent favourites are: Dungeon Born, & Laboratory: a Science Fiction dungeon Core. My guilty pleasure is Super Sales on Super Heroes - mainly because I love the 'upgrade' style powerset. I've also also read Black Friday, and boy did I walk into that one! I should have read the description a bit further... lol. Too much straight erotica, even if I did kinda like the premise.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    The Fjorgyn series, which is on my reading list, has a gay MC. The System Apocalypse series has a bisexual MC (I think). I haven't read either, but I've heard good things about them, and they get a lot of unfair negative reviews for having non-straight MCs.

    Well I'm currently editing an LGBT one that isn't a Harem, in the strictest sense. There is some threesome going on, but that's like ... not until the very end. And that may change with editing.

    Thanks! I've downloaded samples of both, and I'll look forward to seeing what LWFlouisa comes up with! Are there any others?

    As far as GameLit is concerned, Ready Player one has one of the main characters that is a lesbian. Its not mentioned in the movie at all. It is kinda big reveal in the book, but it doesn't seem crucial to the plot.

    It's hard to tell whether the MC of System Apocalypse is bi, pan, or if he's straight and the guy he's attracted to is just ridiculously pretty. Charisma scores, skills, and abilities have a real and measurable impact in that series.

    Thanks, I'll read it at some point - but I'm mainly after gay male main characters. :D

    That sounds hilarious, lol. XD I'll check it out.

    Ah, OK. If you weren't specifically after Lit RPG then pretty much anything that Clive Barker wrote would be good :)

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll take a look at him. Any others? I'll take whatever I can get, so long as there is a gay male MC and the book has magic or sci-fi (or similar).

    Thanks, I might give it a shot but the reviews aren't inspiring! I'm wondering if I shouldn't try to write my own - or ask a writer if they want to let me edit up a gay version of their straight book. I don't know if any would be up for that, but I guess it would be interesting to try and do.

    It is not as bad as the ratings would lead you to believe though the original draft was a LOT more rough >.< it got edited and re-uploaded since the first time I checked it out. Some of the complaints are a bit dumb. One was a complaint about it being gay, another doesn't like emotions in their books lol

    Oh really? I guess it's worth a sample read then! Thanks for the imput, maybe I'll like it now it's been edited. :D
