Diversity in Fantasy and Science Fiction

Beskrivelse
Main characters in a fantasy or science fiction work who are not straight white people. Religious diversity would also work, but it has to be a real life religion that's not Christianity (atheism doesn't count either). Racially diverse is not magical races such as elves or dwarfs, but should correlate withe the real world. However, if a character is both, say, a vampire and Hispanic, that would count. Main character is defined as the protagonist of the work or the character whom the work focuses on.

zjakkelien: The protagonist makes no distinction between men and women when choosing partners, and she's black. A bit controversial, because although she is quite old, her body looks quite young, so it's not for everyone. Still, it meets the requirements.

sturlington: Not strictly sf/f, more magical realism, but the protagonist is Dominican-American and is a huge sf/f geek, so this is worth reading for sf/f fans.
