Other decisions:

Gay and lesbian fiction; Gay and lesbian literature

Works about literature dealing with gay/lesbian themes, characters, etc., are entered under subject headings such as Homosexuality in literature; Gays in literature; etc. Additional subject headings are assigned to show the language, nationality, or literary form, such as American fiction--History and criticism; German literature--20th century--History and criticism. Collections of such literary works are entered under [topic]--Fiction; [topic]--Literary collections; etc., with additional subject headings for the nationality, literary form, etc. Literary works written by gays or lesbians are entered under Gays' writings or Lesbians' writings with appropriate national or language qualifier. Works that discuss multiple relationships between literature and homosexuality and entered under Homosexuality and literature. The concepts expressed in the proposed headings are therefore already provided for in LCSH, and the proposals are not approved.
