RELEASE DATE - 4 MAY 2023

A fun and fascinating compendium of LGBTQ+ icons, one for every day of the year, and a celebration of queer history – or as RuPaul would say; Herstory! 

Discover your queer hero and learn something new every day with 365 Gays of the Year, an accessible and fun introduction to LGBTQ+ history through the people that made it.

Carefully curated and thoughtfully researched, author Lewis Laney assigns a person or group of note to each day of the year to form the ultimate LGBTQ+ hall of fame.

Legendary queer icons such as 
Marsha P Johnson and Freddie Mercury sit alongside lesser known but equally important names such as activist Renée Cafiero, blood donor Barbara Vick, and Sappho the lesbian poet (who was doing her thing in 570BC).

All have contributed amazing achievements to the LGBTQ+ story.  Each month also features one ally - inspiring heterosexual people who have all contributed something significant to the lives of the LGBTQ+ community. People like 
Elizabeth Taylor who “brought AIDS out of the closet and into the ballroom ­– where there was money to be raised”.

Each entry comprises a short biography plus a brief explanation about why that celebratory date represents an important milestone.

Lewis brings international figures to life (famous and lesser-known) with his 
witty and uplifting prose which are peppered with little-known facts and accompanied by bright illustrative portraits from the hugely talented Charlotte MacMillan-Scott.

This 
witty, unique celebration of queer history promises to inspire and empower readers with its wealth of bright stars.

"A wonderful and fascinating tribute to the people who have changed our world."
Matthew Todd, award-winning author of 'PRIDE: The Story of the LGBTQ Equality Movement' and ex-editor of 'attitude' magazine.

"An invaluable book to read and to consult."
Peter Ackroyd, author of 'London: The Biography' and 'Queer City: Gay London from the Romans to the Present Day'
