Inhalt
A landmark reference guide to the LGBTQ community´s contributions to the English language - an intersectional, inclusive, playfully illustrated glossary featuring more than 800 terms and fabulous phrases created by and for queer culture. Do you know where »yaaaas queen!« comes from? Do you know the difference between a bear and a wolf? Do you know what all the letters in LGBTQIA+ stand for? »The Queens´ English« is a comprehensive guide to modern gay slang, queer theory terms, and playful colloquialisms that define and celebrate LGBTQ culture. This modern dictionary provides an in-depth look at queer language, from terms influenced by celebrated lesbian poet Sappho and from New York´s underground queer ball culture in the 1980s to today´s celebration of RuPaul´s »Drag Race«. The glossary of terms is supported by full-color illustrations and photography throughout, as well as real-life usage examples for those who don´t quite know how to use »kiki«, »polysexual«, or »transmasculine« in a sentence. A series of educational lessons highlight key people and events that shaped queer language. Readers will learn the linguistic importance of pronouns, gender identity, Stonewall, the Harlem Renaissance, and more.
