Death in Venice by Thomas Mann
The Symposium by Plato*
Hell Has No Limits by José Donoso

* This one is a philosophical work but it's a pretty light and short read which deals with homosexuality in the ancient Greece.

Well It depends on what you'd like to read. There's a lot of good and awfull stories out there. Most of my books are homoerotic books and some beautiful stories of love. Try Tigers and Devils, dante and aristotle discover the secrets of the universe, Zero at The Bone...

yes indeed, I would add : Patrick ness ( gay author) : " release ", Shaun David Hutchinson (gay author): all books but I like more " we are the ants".
And of course Adam Silvera (gay author) bestsellers "more happy than not" though " history is all you left me " is great as well. although all these books are categorized under " young adult".

I totally recommend "Dante and Aristotle Discover the Secrets of the Universe" by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. Set in 1987 in El Paso, Texas, the story follows Aristotle "Ari" Mendoza. Bored and lonely, Ari goes to the community pool and there he meets Dante Quintana, a boy his age who offers to teach him how to swim. This is the story of their friendship.

It's a really cute story and the cover is seriously eye-catching.

I love Spec-Fic:  SF, fantasy, horror, alternate history, and magic realism.

My first recommendation for gay SF is Lois McMaster Bujold's Ethan of Athos.  Athos is a single-sex society where the social norm is homosexuality.
