I was pleasantly surprised by Line and Orbit, by Lisa Soem and Sunny Moraine. Its authors describe it as a Big Gay Space Opera, which is basically right. (I read both main characters as white, although I don't remember how they were actually described. One is pretty clearly so, and one is a Space Burner, so could be anything but leans white.) Queer comfort fiction, and goodness knows my world could use more of that.
...Which wraps back to why all queer stories needn't be Issue stories. I live Issues every day; sometimes I read to relax.
