Does Six of crows have anything lgbt in it? Like not in the background? I actually have the books but I need motivation to start them and I think I heard something about this before I got them but nothing after the latest one released?
Yes, for sure!! At least 3 of the 6 main protagonists are explicitly lgbt, and many minor characters are as well. There’s a queer romance that develops definitely not in the background, and the narrative is super chill about lgbt love, so not a lot of queer guilt or homophobia floating around either.
Honestly, I’m rereading the books rn with my friend and they are seriously just so. damn. good. I could not recommend them more. The world-building, the characters, and the plot are all rock solid, and so many of the plot twists caught me genuinely by surprise. The whole thing was fast-paced, clever, and full of super diverse characters. I seriously love Six of Crows, please read it immediately and feel free to hmu if you ever want to gush about it.
