Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Homosexuality has hit the mainstream. Civil partnerships and gay marriage continue to grab headlines, while TV successes like Will & Grace and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy point to increased acceptance and appreciation. In this lively, pocket-sized guide - complete with illustrations ? Michelle Baker and Stephen Tropiano have gathered an array of trivia and anecdotes drawn from every corner of queer culture. From literature to heritage and history, from politics to the always fascinating realm of popular culture, readers will find their interest piqued, and their conversations enlivened, by fun (and often funny) facts and figures. Who was the first openly gay politician elected to office? The first lesbian soap character? What's the most successful gay novel of all time? And what is the story behind Abba's "Dancing Queen"? Queer Facts answers these questions and more ? with inimitable style, of course. The book features a foreword by Graham Norton, one of the most popular entertainers on British television and known in the United States for his weekly show on Comedy Central.
