50 Queer Music Icons Who Changed the World: A Celebration of LGBTQ+ Legends

by Will Larnach-Jones - £10.00  Hardie Grant Books (UK) (2018)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781784881504 | ISBN 10: 1784881503

Featuring beautifully illustrated portraits and profiles, 50 Queer Music Icons Who Changed the World is a tribute to queer ground breakers who changed the face of music and popular culture.
 
LGBTQ+ musicians have been pushing for change since the 1920s, with singers such as Bessie Smith crooning about same-sex liaisons almost 100 years ago – long before Frankie Goes to Hollywood were telling everyone to ‘Relax’. This book is a celebration of artists who became icons, and broke new ground through song. From legendary figures such as Freddie Mercury, Little Richard and George Michael, to bands like Bronski Beat, The xx and the Village People, and more contemporary figures including Frank Ocean, Beth Ditto and Rufus Wainwright, these are the people who made an unforgettable impact.
 
Elegantly illustrated and packaged, these stories make utterly inspirational reading.
