  • About the Site

    Welcome to The Queer Scribe, a website for LGBTQ+ fiction.

    We have found that most websites like this one are either exclusively or primarily centred on stories about gay men, or they are focused on erotica (in some cases both). We wished to create an inclusive space where every letter in the QUILTBAG rainbow is welcome, and where stories of every kind are encouraged. We want a place where writers of queer fic can come together to share their work, help each other improve, and support one another. We hope this can be that place.



    Site Rules

    These can, in essence, be boiled down to the classic Don't Be a Dick, but just to be thorough, here's a brief list to aid you in that pursuit.

    1. This should go without saying, but NO homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, racism, ableism, sexism, or essentially any other kind of -ism or -phobia related to vulnerable or marginalised people will be tolerated here. We promote and encourage diversity, and we want everyone to feel welcome here.

    2. We welcome discussion of LGBTQ+ issues, but ask that such discussion be conducted respectfully and civilly, and without personal attacks. If you're confused as to what that means, please see rule number one.

    3. We will absolutely not tolerate, nor will we host content related to, pedophilia. This includes sexualising pre-pubescent kids and young teens, and flirting with minors.

    4. This is not a dating site! We hope our users will build many lasting friendships, and if two consenting adults want to flirt, by all means, go ahead, but unsolicited sexual advances are not cool, and any kind of catfishing attempt will result in a permanent ban if discovered.

    5. Excessive cursing/swearing on the forums is discouraged. We're all (mostly?) adults here, but there's no need to overdo it. Have at it in stories, though, assuming they're rated correctly.


    We hope that these rules will be adequate to create a safe, inclusive environment for scribes and readers alike. Thank you.
