Over on [community profile] podficmeta they did something for 3W4DW that I think might work well here. One of the moderators, [personal profile] zvi, posted asking people to suggest things they'd like to have discussed on the community. So, I'm going to do the same, lifting most of the phrasing from her post ;)

Please comment to this post if there's a discussion you'd like to see happen on this community. If you have a full fledged entry, you can tell me that you'd like to do the posting. If you just have an idea you'd be okay with me riffing on, say that and I will.

I'll then post top-level posts prompting discussion on the subjects suggested.

I'd be interested in talking about Holmes pastiches and contemporary detectives who aren't middle-to-upper-class white men. I'm not really sure if that fits the mandate of the community, since it wouldn't necessarily go to a lgbt place? The userinfo gives the impression that you're using a really broad interpretation of queering, though, and it might work.

I have a start on a post about it, and asked awhile back on [community profile] dreams_library about detectives in the period who were neither male nor white, so there are interesting places to go.

ETA: And I could always post about Their Majesties' Bucketeers. :D
