Are you looking for lesbian hashtags to promote your books on Twitter? Or perhaps you want to find the latest gay fiction?
I’ve put together a list of seven hashtags that you need to know if you write LGBTQ+ fiction and if you read queer books and want to find even more!
Most of these hashtags are associated with challenges or events but I’ve added a few bonus hashtags at the end that are far more general.
Hosted by @EvieDrae #PromoLGBTQ happens every Saturday and is a great place to share your art, find new art, and promote LGBTQ creators.

#ownvoices is a movement started @corinneduyvis to recommend children’s and young adult books about diverse characters written by authors from that same diverse group. Now expanded to any literature written by ‘own voice’ authors, this hashtag is a great way to find and talk about LGBTQIA books.
Five years ago today, #ownvoices was born.— Corinne | pre-order THE ART OF SAVING THE WORLD (@corinneduyvis) September 6, 2020
I know the hashtag is often complex, but I’m proud of how far it’s come. How valuable it is to many marginalized authors. How many amazing books it’s lifted up.
Thanks to all who use it, celebrate it, discuss it. And happy birthday ? https://t.co/SL39VpSd1m
Hosted by @OceanWrites, #LesFicFri is a safe place where writers are encouraged to share a line or two from a lesbian fiction project they have either published or are currently working on.
Happy Thurs. #lesficfri Friends! ?— Ocean – author (@OceanWrites) August 27, 2020
Tomorrow’s theme is ****BREATH***
Are your character’s struggling to BREATHE? ?
Gasping deep BREATHS? ?
Do they have bad BREATH? ?
We’re looking forward to reading about your character’s BREATHING! pic.twitter.com/mrEL71ajJD
These hashtags don’t seem to have any particular challenge or group associated with them but are a fab way to see who is posting what in the world of lesbian books:
