What Genres Do You Think Get Overlooked?

When thinking of genres in that LGBTQIA stories can fall into, the ones that most quickly fall into mind are contemporary, supernatural, fantasy, SciFy, paranormal, action adventure, mystery, romance, all sorts of combinations thereof and somewhere down the line comes historical and western.  And I’m not sure why.

Contemporary romance with cowboys?  Yes, and lots of them.  But historical romances, and those with cowboys? Maybe not so many…

And I absolutely adore them.  When they are done right.  That’s a spectacularly hard thing to do.  Between the language, the feel of the times and locations, and the rules and  laws that changes by crossing a river…well the challenge to a author is daunting to say the least.

And yet  there are those writers that can bring you into the hills and times of our past and bring them alive in ways that make history and their characters sing to your heart.  Is or was it possible for men to have a happy ending in the past or was every story a Brokeback Mountain?  Hmmmm…..write me and let me know your opinion.
