The truth is that back in the 1970s and 1980s, when it was definitely not fashionable to write sympathetic gay characters in fiction aimed at the mainstream audience, I created several sympathetic homosexual characters. I did not exploit them for titillation; instead I showed them threading their lives through a world that was far from friendly to them.
I remember a homosexual character in Lovelock, and I vaguely remember one in Songmaster. What other homosexual characters appeared in OSC's early work?
