Recently Cassandra Clare, author of the highly acclaimed shadowhunter series' The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices showed her support for the LGBTQ community by offering a cast signed copy of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones to the highest bidder as well as an autographed picture of Mr. Magnus Bane himself, Godfrey Gao.
The Trevor Project is one of the national leading organizations that provides support and suicide prevention services to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth community as said on their website.
For all those donate, Clare is releasing a snippet from the upcoming Bane Chronicles, released in ebook format this April.
On her Tumblr page Cassandra Clare shared some of her fan mail that expressed how much impact her books have had, featuring gay characters and relationships such as Magnus and Alec, Aline and Helen.
Clare said, “Thank you to everyone who has ever written to me, or come to see me, or messaged me to share their stories about Magnus and Alec, or Aline and Helen. It means more than I can say. I know I have a lot of learning to do in terms of writing characters of diverse sexuality, but I do love these characters and it means a great deal that other people love them too.”
So get out there and donate for your chance to win the signed book and picture, the snippet from the Bane Chronicles but most importantly to show your support and spread the word of the good work The Trevor Project is doing.
