Any GLBT secondary couples?

Post by Omolara on Sat Jun 01, 2013 6:48 pm

New here! Just started reading this series (and just started reading Singh in general). I'm on the second book in the series, and it just occurred to me that I've only seen different-sex couples, even in the background. Are there ever any queer couples? Even if just in a window-dressing fashion? I've read that none of the core couples will be/are gay, but, as a queer reader, I always like it when there's at least a hint that queerness exists somewhere in a fictional universe. I won't stop reading if there aren't any (I'm enjoying all the wings--and being frustrated that my favorite characters so far, Illium and Venom, don't have books yet!), but it'll make me a bit sad.

forget that, wrong series, with the Guild Hunters there are no gay couples I know of, sorry...

so, your question is, if there´s a gay couple?
I hope I did get that right and actually there is one couple I know of(or think I know of, sometimes my english reading abilities are not at their best ;-)), forgot their names, but they´re Dark River Leopards....hmm, I really forgot their names, but they´re mentioned somewhere and they´re female...but I can´t remember any other couple

Yep, that was my question! No worries about misinterpreting the series. Good to hear there's at least one couple hanging around in the Psy-Changeling books (I might try those, too, once I run out of GH). Too bad there aren't a few somewhere in GH! All those immortals and none of them's queer. Ah, well!

In the Psy-Changeling series, the couple is Simran and Inez who are both soldiers in the SnowDancer pack. They are pretty minor characters, though.

In the Guild Hunter series, you'll have to read the novella Angels' Judgement (which can be found in the anthologies Must Love Hellhounds and Angels' Flight). In that story, the relationship between Marco (a former Guild Hunter/bar owner) and Silas (a vampire) contributes a major point in the plot.

One of my major problems with the series, actually. Especially with the Psy/Changeling series. It's not as if there weren't lots of gay wolves, lions, bats, giraffes and so on. I think with the Psy/Changelings, it's especially problematic because of the implications. (Mating? Only for cishet couples! - Though with TON and also BOM, that was toned down a little.)
