Jack Guinness’s popular website QueerBible.com is a space dedicated to queer history. Now his beautiful, illustrated book The Queer Bible continues his mission celebrating queer culture for LGBTQI+ community and its allies. A stellar line-up of today’s queer icons including Graham Norton and Russell Tovey write about the queer trailblazers, from Susan Sontang to James Baldwin, who inspired them. At a time when queer rights are being rolled back worldwide it’s more important than ever to celebrate the queer community. As Jack puts it ‘we stand on the shoulders of giants – now we learn their names.’

Toby Oliver is a Stonewall Champion, yoga teacher and therapist who has worked in theatre and performing arts.
