About Queer Icons from Gay to Z

The LGBTQ+ community is a loving family. As such, this colourful hardback celebrates our most iconic sisters, brothers and gender nonconforming friends.

This book is an alphabetic celebration of queer activists, artists, comedians, writers, philosophers, musicians, poets and Olympic gold medallists. These icons of the LGBTQ+ community have collectively championed civil rights, radically increased queer visibility and provided means of escapism through their soul-affirming artistry.

Just some of the trailblazers featured in Queer Icons from Gay to Z (and illustrated in fabulous detail by Antoine Corbineau) include Josephine Baker, Leigh Bowery, Laverne Cox, Alan Cumming, Hannah Gadsby, Keith Haring, Marsha P Johnson, Elton John, Freddie Mercury, and more. Loaded with trivia and factoids about each icon – this boldly illustrated book unites pop cultural figures of the current day with the activists and revolutionaries who fought (sometimes literally to the death) for the right to be who they are, and the right to love whoever they hell they want.
