Trying to just mention things that haven't been listed already:

-Tanya Huff writes good queer characters in many books.
-Jo Walton's Pocketful of Change trilogy stars a gay lead (bonus, he was dedicated to helping other oppressed characters)
-Melissa Scott's Trouble and Her Friends (although I know Scott has been more generally mentioned)
-Because I just finished it, Seanan McGuire's Velveteen vs. serial on her blog has a Hispanic main character, queer side characters who become increasingly main, and a trans* character as well
-Thersa Matsuura's short story collection A Robe of Feathers is sort of UF from a Japanese background
-Paolo Bacigalupi's The Wind-Up Girl
-Richard Morgan's Thirteen has a black main character, and his epic fantasy series has multiple queer main characters
-Cherie Priest's Eden Moore trilogy has a mixed-race lead
-Eileen Wilks' main World of the Lupi woman is Chinese-American
-Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock is Cherokee
-Mercedes Lackey's Vanyel trilogy has a gay main character, and her standalone Sacred Ground has a Native American lead
-Barry Hughart's Chronicles of Master Li and Number Ten Ox are in China

I'm sure I'm missing so many things!
