Sarah Does anyone know which books on this list have bisexual characters? The only ones I'm familiar with have lesbian characters or general queer/nolabel characters.


message 3: by Melinda (new)

Melinda Sarah—
I would say Down to the Bone and A Map of Home, but perhaps they would actually be part of your "general queer/no label" category. It depends on how you define bisexual, as an umbrella term for attraction to more than one gender, or as a specific identity that only exists with the self-conscious adoption of the label. You also may be interested in this list, if you haven't seen it yet: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/28...


message 4: by Sarah (new)

Sarah I'm considering it as a conscious identity in and of itself, not merely an umbrella. And while I don't know all the books on this list, I don't think any of them feature women of color that actually call themselves bisexual. Unfortunately I think that racism/white supremacy and bierasure are combining in a really horrible way here.


message 5: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Should The Miseducation of Cameron Post be on this list? The only character of color that I recall is male.
