Rainbows, Unicorns, and Triangles: Queer Symbols Throughout History – Jessica Kingsley Publishers + Jem Milton
Publication Date: 21st March 2024
In the past, being different has often been dangerous, and people couldn’t always be open about how they wanted to dress, what gender they wanted to be, and who they loved…
Within these pages, you’ll learn about how LGBTQIA2S+ people have used signs and symbols throughout history to communicate with each other, create safe spaces, and celebrate who they are!
You’ll recognise the rainbow flags of Pride Month, but what about the Labrys, the Lambda or the Lavender Rhino? This beautifully illustrated guide takes you on a journey through everything from the green carnations of Oscar Wilde and the violets of Sappho to the black rings of asexuality and the reclaimed pink triangles of persecution. A wonderful guide for children 5+ to the visual worlds of queer life.
