If any of you have time and have been following Yes Gay YA, can you please do me a favor?

1. Go through the comments to the Genreville article, and pull links to particularly notable comments, with a note saying what they are. In particular, we'd like direct links to all the comments from authors who experienced similar problems with agents or editors.

ETA: [personal profile] tool_of_satan did the Genreville comments. Thank you!

2. Link me to particularly notable/interesting articles and blog posts. Again, we're particularly interested in others with similar experiences.

3. Ditto, with Twitter. Any kind of general summary of notable Twitter conversations would be great.

Thanks!

This is for a follow-up article Sherwood and I will be writing, probably next week.

I have by no means read all the follow up pieces, but I did enjoy this one:
http://robintalley.wordpress.com/2011/09/12/its-more-complicated-than-yesgayya/

Which might seem to push a bit against your post in the first few sentences, but then steers back into "it's complicated" territory, which I appreciated.

I would do this if I had the spoons. :/

But, wanted to note that someone might also want to go through the boingboing comments, since there are a couple excellent rebuttals of straw men and "it's just the industry" type comments.

I can go through the Genreville comments tomorrow - maybe tonight, but I can't promise that.

I would also really like links to posts by agents and editors saying they're willing to rep/buy solid YA books with LGBT protagonists.
