2024 marks the 40th anniversary of the 'year pop went queer'. It was a year of
subversion through the pop charts as some of the brightest 'out' artists, biggest
global acts and closeted pop stars took queer pop and culture to the very top of the
charts to an unsuspecting public.

The book is set against the backdrop of rabid right-wing bigotry and homophobia as
well as an emerging AIDS crisis which both shaped and defined pop culture at the
time as well as casting a long shadow for the years that followed.

Queen, George Michael, David Bowie, Pet Shop Boys, Madonna - just some of the
artists who will feature heavily in the book - are recognised as much for their music
as their culturally iconic stature.
