9781590212394: Queer Hauntings: True Tales of Gay & Lesbian Ghosts

Queer Hauntings: True Tales of Gay and Lesbian Ghosts is a collection of eerie locales worldwide with a queer bent, combining historical fact and unearthly encounters from across the United States, as well as around the globe. From haunted bars in New Orleans to a haunted theater in London, this guide encompasses the other side of the supernatural. The stories range from the serious, from brutal murders in rural Georgia, to the light-hearted, including the male spirit who enjoys unzipping men's trousers at a British pub. Ghosts of legendary celebrities intermingle with ordinary individuals.


Along with these queer spirits are many businesses, either gay-owned or catering to a gay/lesbian clientele, experiencing hauntings. Clubs and bars hide more than shy young lovers in their darkened corners. Countless bed and breakfasts have otherworldly guests staying the night. Behind the shadows and doors of societal homophobia hide find pink phantoms and lavender apparitions in cities and towns spread across the globe.

Review:

For fans of the paranormal, Queer Hauntings - True Tales of Gay and Lesbian Ghosts is the perfect read for gay and even straight audiences alike. --Edge Boston

Utterly, absolutely fascinating reading; a must-have for paranormal enthusiasts and lovers of ghostly lore, regardless of sexual orientation.... The lives of the people who populate this volume are as like to send chills (chills of sympathy and horror over the tragedies, the lives lost, the interrupted and misunderstood loves) down your spine as the hauntings themselves. Ken Summers is an engaging storyteller.... --Rainbow Reviews

This book is easily the first of its kind and a very welcome edition for gays and lesbians that like to get goose bumps in the middle of the night for reasons other than someone pulling the covers off of them! Recommended for any library that wants to add another dimension to its supernatural section. Suitable for teens and adults alike. --GLBT-Roundtable of the American Library Association
