A cheeky, progressive adult alphabet book that celebrates and illuminates LGBTQIA+ terminology.

What would happen if someone picked up a classic ABC book, crossed out the words, and replaced them with LGBTQIA+ terms?

A is for ally, B is for bisexual and C is for cisgender in GAYBCs – a playful,  progressive alphabet book that celebrates and demystifies queer terminology for everyone. A ladybird gains a matching girlfriend to become lesbian, kiss becomes kink and tie gets a twist to become transgender. GAYBCs also defines less commonly known terms such as femme, Mx and ze, and puts a queer-friendly spin on words like wedding and equality.

'A fabulously gorgeous alterna-lexicon that showcases the human condition in all its non-binary delight.' — Vanessa Wagner, showgirl and activist
