Blay is such a good guy and too good for Qhuinn. He’s best friends with John Matthew and Qhuinn. Blaylock fell in love with Qhuinn but had to see him having sex with females all the time while treating him like shit until they finally got together.
Simon’s a closeted gay who starts messaging with fellow classmate who uses a nickname Blue. Simon is funny, awkward teen and I really enjoyed reading about him and Blue.
I want to read the books but I haven’t yet so I have no idea how different he’s in them. Eliot is a student in Brakebills University aka in a school for magicians. Unlike in Harry Potter in The Magicians pain instead of skill makes a person good at magic and Eliot has been through a lot.
He grew up with his homophobic father and it was shown that his father is his biggest fear. Eliot enjoys partying, alcohol and drugs, especially when he’s in pain and he doesn’t like to show his feelings.
I don’t really know how much Magnus can be categorized as lgbt+ characters since his love interest is genderfluid but I do count him as gay character. Magnus’ life changed completely when he found out that his father is one of the Norse gods. It was so adorable when he realized that he has feelings for Alex.
After all this time blogging I don’t think anyone is surprised that this character is on my list. I could speak about Carry On over and over again. I can’t wait to read more about him in the second book.
Baz’s mother was killed by vampires when he was a child and they turned Baz. He started attending Watford when he was eleven and became roommates with Simon Snow. Baz and Simon hated each other but Baz started having feelings for him but instead of telling Simon he started to mess up with him.
No matter which version of Alec we’re talking about I like all of them. I don’t only have sentimental value to Alexander Lightwood since he’s the first lgbt+ character I ever fell for but he’s also relatable. He has his issues like how he needs to use almost all his energy to keep his sister and adopted brother alive, especially when said brother is reckless af.
I don’t really know what happened between book one and two between Alec and his love interest Magnus but I absolutely love all the character development Alec has been through from The Mortal Instruments to Shadowhunter Academy. He really went from thinking he was in love with Jace to admitting that he was dating a warlock during one book.
