This illustrated picture 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-affirm artistry.
Just some of the trailblazers featured in Queer Icons from Gay to Zinclude Josephine Baker, Laverne Cox, Ellen DeGeneres, Keith Haring, Neil Patrick Harris, Marsha P Johnson, Harvey Milk, Martina Navratilova, Cynthia Nixon, Frank Ocean, Ruby Rose, and so on - all the way to Z. Loaded with trivia and factoids about each icon - this colourfully illustrated book unites pop culture icons 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 damn well please.
