About this title

Synopsis:

Hundreds of inspirational, humorous, and provocative quotations about being queer

What is a queer quote? It’s a reflection on love and romance, culture and art, family and friends, and the foibles and follies of life. It’s an insight into not only what it means to be gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender in our society, but what it means to be human. It’s fresh, entertaining, and celebratory.

Queer Quotes is a compendium of wit and wisdom from well-known historical and contemporary cultural figures from Oscar Wilde to Rita Mae Brown, from Quentin Crisp to Sandra Bernhardt, from James Baldwin to RuPaul. Often amusing, the quotes are also thought-provoking and up-to-date, and chapters ranging from Love and Gay Marriage” to Out of the Closets, into the Streets” to HIV/AIDS” to Queer History” reflect this book’s scope. Including an index as well as short biographies of all the individuals quoted, Queer Quotes is a wonderful resource and an ideal gift book.
