I’m 14 and I LOVE to read. I love Star War, Percy Jackson and Hamilton. I love stories about disabled and lgbtq+ people too. I just have a hard time choosing some. Any suggestions????
Yes I’m sorry. I mean the musical.

Zelazny's Lord of Light is an exciting sweeping story that paints vast landscapes in the imagination. A good movie version of it, if they ever make one, could be great. It's a shame that Roger Zelazny did not live to make movies of his books though, in truth, it would take a truly brilliant filmmaker to do justice to Zelazny. His Nine Princes in Amber would make nearly as powerful a movie and is nearly as good a read. Then there's Marion Zimmer Bradley. Her Darkover novels paint a picture of a fascinating world, although taken individually none of them stood out as great; however, her fairly mediocre treatment of each of the Darkover stories was made up for by the depth of her elaborate vision of that imaginary world. Marion Zimmer Bradley did write one novel which stood out as brilliant and exceptional in quality compared to her other writings and that was The Mists of Avalon. Her sequels to that brilliant book were of the same mediocrity as her Darkover novels and other series of books. But Mists really stood out head and shoulders above the rest. She died young also, around 50 in Berkeley, of a heart attack in the Episcopal Church on Bancroft right off campus. The movie version of Mists, despite having the brilliant Angelica Houston, was just crap. The script was so poor it was definitely a grade B disappointment. But Marion Zimmer Bradley's The Mists of Avalon is a great read. Then there's Dune, which was a crap movie, but the first book in the series is a good read. And Little Big is incredible when you have the intellectual maturity to understand. Anyone who could do justice to Little Big as a movie would transform the world. Then you have your old classics such as Wuthering Heights and your greatest Ancient Classics like Ovid's Metamorphoses and Lucius Apuleius The Golden . . . and of course the enlightening Decamerón of Boccaccio, a Mediaeval classic jolly better than Dante's dreary stories. The great twentieth century trilogy by Robert Anton Wilson, The Illuminatus trilogy. Brilliant and so funny at once, you laugh from the moment you begin to read it until the moment you finish the third book, then grab for the first volume to read again.

Green Angel. It's short but very good.

When you say Hamilton do you mean the British SF author Percy Hamilton, the American SF authors Edmund Hamilton or Thomas Wm. Hamilton, or Lynn-Manuel Miranda's Broadway show "Hamilton"? Sorry if I'm thick, but the name is almost as bad as Smith! Personally I like the SF all three write, although Edmond's is very old by several decades.

We read the same books so here's a few I love:
Lockwood and Co- Jonathan Stroud
All for the game- Nora Sakavic (has gay and disabled rep but swear a lot and uses the f and r slur a few times so don't read if you don't like that. Also there's s*xual assult at one point and drug and alcohol misuse but it honestly is such a good series)
Running with lions- Julian Winters (bisexual and gay rep)
Song of Achilles- Madeline Miller
Aristotle and Dantes discover the secrets of the universe- Benjamin Alire Saenz (gay rep)
Trials of Apollo- Rick Riordan (gay, bi, lesbian and poc rep)
The raven boys- Maggie Stiefvater
Carry on- Rainbow Rowell (the writing is awful but I love the characters)
Autoboyography- Christina Lauren (gay and bi rep)
Elysium- Nora Sakavic
Far far away- Tom Mcneal (really underrated book)
Survivor- Tom Hoyle
That's all I can think of but Lockwood and Co and All for the Game are my absolute favourites!

You should read the book Wonder! it's by RJ palacio..Heres a description of the book, i think you'll really like it!! Auggie, is an ordinary boy in many ways. He rides a bike and likes playing with his Xbox. But Auggie has deformities of the face and looks very different from other children. At the start of the book, he tells us 'My name is August. I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.' In the street, people look at Auggie and his appearance shocks them.
Auggie has never been to school because he has spent a lot of time in hospital. His mother teaches him at home, but now he’s ten, she thinks he should go to school. At first, Auggie doesn’t want to go. He worries that other students will look at him and say horrible things. But then he visits a school with his mum, he likes the headteacher and decides to go. Auggie’s first year at school has good times and bad times. Auggie makes some good friends but other children are horrible to him. At the end of the year, Auggie goes on a school trip and a frightening event there changes things completely.

My only suggestion is to read widely, and not to neglect the classics (they're classics for a reason...).
However, specific to your request:
Oranges are Not the Only Fruit - Jeanette Winterson
My Left Foot - Christy Brown

Dystopian novels are a great genre to read.
A Handmaids Tale is a nice start. You can even watch the adaptation of it, isn’t perfectly accurate to the book but well made.
