Taking the reader on a thought-provoking and entertaining journey, Amelia explores the mainstreaming of queer culture across the West, from the first same-sex marriage in Britain, the world's biggest drag convention in LA, Pride parades across Europe, a transgender model agency, and Turkey's underground LGBTQ+ scene, to a genderless, polyamorous commune in Stockholm. Owen Jones said- 'this book will resonate with a new generation of queer people and all those who seek to be their allies - a brilliant book'. Naomi Wolf wrote- 'A voice that is profound, vulnerable and hilarious in turn.'
