Yesterday, Dreamspinner author Ryan Loveless tweeted to inform @glaad that Amazon is currently including books about incest, bestiality and pedophilia in their "gay and lesbian fiction" category. This can be seen if you look at the top 100 bestsellers in the category, which includes the book "The Girl Who Loved Horses" by Peter de Sade -- the description of the book makes it clear that it is about bestiality and heterosexual incest, yet for some reason it's classed as "gay and lesbian". Also included in the list is "Trailer Trash 2 Down on the Farm", by the same author and much in the same vein -- except with some eroticised child sexual abuse thrown in.

I don't think I need to tell anyone how homophobic and offensive it is that such books are included under the umbrella of "gay and lesbian".

You can contact Amazon about this issue using their Contact Us form.
