The portrayal of homosexuality in speculative fiction has undergone many changes. Numerous works in the science fiction and fantasy genres have been labelled as "gay". This may be due to the work containing gay or bisexual characters or themes, or simply having a gay author or being published by an LGBT small press. A number of anthologies focusing on "gay", "lesbian" and LGBT-themed science fiction, fantasy or horror have also been produced.
