No, they weren’t ‘just friends’!

Queer women have been written out of history since, well, forever. ‘But historians famously care about women!’, said no one. From Anne Bonny and Mary Read who sailed the seas together disguised as pirates, to US football captain Megan Rapinoe declaring ‘You can’t win a championship without gays on your team’, via countless literary salons and tuxedos, A Short History of Queer Women sets the record straight on women who have loved other women through the ages.

Who says lesbians can’t be funny?

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘I absolutely adored it, quite literally couldn’t put it down once I started and devoured it in one sitting. It was heartfelt and hilarious, and full of so much love for, not just all lesbians, but all walks of the LGBT+ community. A real witty sucker-punch of lesbian history - reading it is like uncovering a secret; it’s shocking, romantic, infuriating, and all of it clawing at the pages with a need to finally be heard.’ - Connie Glyn

'Fast paced, fun, and delightfully filthy.' - Kate Lister

“Funny irreverent and very gay”

Very much a whistle stop tour of history's greatest lesbians, right back to Sappho herself.

“omg they were roommates”

If you're looking for something light-hearted and easy to read this Non-Fiction November, this is a good one! I've read a few reviews where readers didn't enjoy the flippant sarcasm that Loehr employs,... More

“Jubilantly Queer”

Offering a brief look at the lives of queer women from Sappho to Sandi Toksvig, this belly-laugh inducing, unashamedly “revisionist history” is like having a conversation with your funniest friend.
