Jack Guinness: ‘The Queer Bible is a fully illustrated collection of twenty essays celebrating the queer community and the individuals that shaped its history. It’s a simple premise: I ask my heroes to write about their queer heroes!
Featuring: Elton John, Russell Tovey, Munroe Bergdorf, Tan France, Lady Phyll, Graham Norton, Courtney Act, Gus Kenworthy, Paris Lees, Mae Martin, Mykki Blanco, Matthew Todd, Mark Moore, Paul Mendez, Paul Flynn, Juliet Jacques, Paul Akpan, David Furnish, Joseph Cassara, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Freddy McConnell, and me, Jack Guinness!
The pieces in the book are funny, moving and inspiring; learn about unsung heroes and see queer icons in a fresh light. It’s the culmination of years of work – the book is a love letter to the LGBQT+ community. For too long queer narratives have been hidden or forcibly erased. It is time to bring those stories into the light.’
