A Short History of Queer Women

by Kirsty Loehr Author

No, they weren't 'just friends'!! Queer people have always existed, and queer women in particular have long been erased from the history books or otherwise misrepresented. In this volume, author Kirsty Loehr sets out to correct the historical record and to have a little fun along the way. From Anne Bonny and Mary Read disguising themselves as pirates and sailing the seas together, to captain of the U.S. Women's Soccer team Megan Rapinoe declaring 'you can't win a championship without gays on your team,' Loehr goes back over the centuries to pencil in the queer women that time has forgotten. An entertaining and empowering read.
