Queerness is everywhere and it always has been. But queer stories, culture and communities have been often hidden . . . 'This affirming whistlestop tour through queer history and culture features an A-Z of camp icons as well as protest timelines, changing terminology, iconic artists, music, film and more. Engaging, witty and thoughtful, it's full of a supportive kindness that LGBTQ+ teens may find indispensable.' -TheGuardian Queerbook is an invitation to discover and celebrate queer joy, past and present. It's a whistlestop tour of all the fun (and serious) queer stuff that the foghorn of straight culture drowns out, and that you deserve to know: heroes and histories, science and stories, art, spaces, music, film, TV, fashion - along with jargon-free breakdowns of terms from sexuality and gender identity, to code-switching, intersectionality, bi-erasure, straightwashing, and much, much more. You don't need any specific interests to read Queerbook - all you need is curiosity and a desire to learn more about what it means to be LGBTQ+. So, say no to the Straightrix and enter the technicolour world over the rainbow . . . Ready? Queer we go!
