Free Lesbian Fiction Online
A list of lesbian stories, from published to fanfiction, that are freely and legally available online (as well as websites to find more).
Whether written and drawn by amateurs or professionals, webcomics change and grow over time. They are very much a living medium, as the skills of the creator improve and as they respond to their audience or as the characters come to life.
The web is still free to publish on, and this means that there are more 'fringe' genres available online than in print. Webcomics are becoming increasingly popular, both to attempt and among online audiences. This means that there are several good GLBT webcomics around - and a great many more that are GLBT-friendly in some way. There's even a webcomic porn site for women.

Writing Gay Characters is a guide to how to write gay characters normally - without stereotyping, or pushing them awkwardly into prominence. Written by Megan Rose Gedris - probably the best known LGBT-webcomic artist on the web, she offers tips on how to approach your characters, and how to spot if you've gone too far. She also discusses why they're worth including, what they used to be like, and offers a very helpful question and answer section.
