A landmark reference guide to the LGBTQIA+ community´s contributions to the English language-an intersectional, inclusive illustrated glossary featuring more than 800 terms created by and for queer culture.

With a foreword from Paula Akpan

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 LGBTQIA+ 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.

For every queen in your life-the men, women, gender non-conforming femmes, butches, daddies, and zaddies-The Queens´ English is at once an education and a celebration of queer history, identity, and the limitless imagination of the LGBTQIA+ community.
