The twentieth century saw key shifts for the LGBTQI+ community across the western world: from the Stonewall uprising to the first pride parades and homosexuality law reforms. The years following these milestone moments have seen queer life face new challenges, celebrations, injustices and liberations.  Artists working across all mediums – from painting, performance, digital and beyond – have captured key moments, from the HIV/AIDS crisis and the rise of drag, to marriage equality and the fight for trans liberation. The artists include: Andrew Logan, sculptor and founder of the Alternative Miss World party; leading artists David Hockney, Nicole Eisenmann and Zanele Muholi; late greats Greer Lankton, Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon and Tom of Finland; pioneers of Queer Cinema Derek Jarman and Sir Isaac Julien; ground-breaking photographers Nan Goldin, Ajamu X, Wolfgang Tilmans and Catherine Opie; contemporary art stars Sin Wai Kin, Zackary Drucker and Clifford Prince King.... With nearly 200 artworks selected by leading LGBTQI+ curator Gemma Rolls-Bentley, this book mixes the high-brow with the low, gallery stalwarts with Instagram stars, and the racy with the fabulous. This is a unique celebration of queer life – a must-have for the LGBTQI+ community, art lovers and anyone interested in the culture surrounding queer identity.
