£12.50

‘Could totally change the way you think about sex and gender ... an utterly un-dusty tome that questions everything from the way we categorise our sexual desire to the foundations of happiness.’ Author: VICE

‘This hopeful and welcoming attitude should encourage readers to queer their own lives in whatever ways feel right.’ Author: Publishers Weekly

‘Yanks the jargon of Foucault, Butler and a who’s who of philosophers down from the clouds and into simple, clear messages’ Author: Sydney Morning Herald

‘A concise, precise and beautifully illustrated introduction.’ Author: Kieron Gillen

‘A playful, graphic analysis of the paradox that is queer theory – opens our hearts as much as it engages our minds.’ Author: Kate Bornstein

‘With their inspired synthesis of words and imagery, MJ Barker and Julia Scheele take us beyond binaries to show us the richness of queer as a critique, as a verb and as an approach to life itself.’ Author: Jane Czyzselska

'Succeeds in opening its rarefied subject matter to non-academic audiences and disrupting assumptions and preconceptions about gender and sexuality, not to mention race, class, and the idea of “normal.”'

‘Unexpected, extraordinary wit and erudition ... Aha moments come one right after another. One small step for queer theory, this project will leap the layman far down the path of tolerance and understanding.’

‘One of the most enjoyable aspects of this book is the charm of Julia Scheele’s understated, accessible illustrations ... The book holds a great amount of respect for this pantheon of theorists, even when problematizing some of their views, and the art communicates that respect effectively.’

‘Fresh interpretations and clever illustrations help bring new life to academic constructs and an understanding of the intersection of biology, psychology, and modern culture.’
