Queer Folk Tales: A Book of LGBQT Stories


Literary Studies

A long-awaited set of traditional tales focusing solely on the queer community, showing princesses can fall in love with lady bards, warriors with their noblemen, and that one born a prince may become the most wonderful queen. A simply dressed musician stepped forward and stood before the Emperor. She put her instrument bag on the ground, curtsied and said, "Your Majesty, I have come to ask for the hand of your daughter in marriage." There was uproar in the throne room, but the Emperor silenced them. "My daughter has made her decision and she has decided that this is the most perfect blue rose that she has ever seen. Who am I who are we to contradict her opinion, her choice?"' In this collection of delightful, fanciful and often magical tales, professional storyteller Kevin Walker seeks to create and adapt a host of stories for the LGBTQ+ community. These sometimes traditional and sometimes new stories show queer people young and old that they belong not only in today's world, but also in a storytelling tradition going back centuries, if not millennia. Suitable for all ages, this is a wonderful collection of stories for the LGBTQ+ community to enjoy and continue to tell through the ages. AUTHOR: Kevin Walker was a professional storyteller for twenty years and now concentrates on painting and turning his stories to print. He is well versed in performing his stories, his last performance piece being FAERIE WANTING TO MEET UNICORN, which shared with the audience a collection of LGBTQ+ themed stories. He lives in Leicester. 1 b/w illustration
