Some potential options are:
Poppy Z Brite (Trans male whose books tend to feature gay characters)
My Soul to Keep - Tananarive Due (African American woman)
The Devil in Silver - Victor LaValle (mental illness)
Mira Grant’s series Newsflesh and Parasitology (diversity in ethnicity, sexual and gender orientation, and ability (mental & physical))
The Books of Blood Vols. 1-6 - Clive Barker (Barker's works "include emotionally real queer characters")
Owl Goingback (Native American horror author)
Stephen Graham Jones (Native American horror author)
Occultation and other Stories - Laird Barron (at least one story features four (non-stereotypical) gay men)
Horror Stories, Tunku Halim (collection of horror short stories set in multi-racial Malaysia)
Black Spirits & White: A Book of Ghost Stories - Ralph Adams Cram (a biography alleges he & his circle were "closeted homosexual men who demonstrated their sexuality through their designs")
Various early Gothic novel authors were gay men: Matthew Lewis, William Thomas Beckford and Francis Lathom; Charles Maturin's The Fatal Revenge and Melmoth the Wanderer had clear gay subtext. Le Fanu's Carmilla was a lesbian vamp, then of course The Picture of Dorian Gray and Dracula had their implications.
So, what are your plans?
The was an interesting story from Pepper's perspective with some surprising things that the other patients do. It also tells about some of the doctor's frustrations with how the system is run financially and how that affects the patients, who are all poor. It did leave me with the question of whether some, but not all, of the things that happened weren't real but just in a patient's mind. Although some horrible things happened, I thought it was only mild horror, which is fine with me. I also liked that it ended on a hopeful note.
The patients were of various ethnicities but I didn't really know until near the end of the book when the details were specified. I thought that worked with the story. During their time in the hospital, the patients were more connected to each other and that experience than their various cultures.
In this sequel to The Talented Mr. Ripley, Tom Ripley is married and living in France. A few years back, he concocted a scheme where, although a painter had died, someone was rounded up to paint in that painter’s name, as if he was still alive and a recluse. There was a gallery in London that sold this painter’s paintings, there were art supplies and a school of art all in this (dead) painter’s name. But when an American suspects he has bought a forgery and wants to come to London to prove it, Tom must stop this from happening…
This pulled me in early on. There was a bit of a lull in the middle for me, but it picked up again at the end. It was good and I do plan to continue the series.
White is for Witching was certainly very interesting. It did have shades of Haunting of Hill House with unreliable narration thrown in. My first Oyeyemi but not my last.
I finished Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, which is a vampire story set in Mexico that incorporates a good deal of Aztec mythology. Most of the characters were too creepy to be likable but I loved the world that the author created.
