About The Queens' English: Young Reader's Edition:

This young readers adaptation of The Queens’ English is a nonfiction illustrated reference guide to the LGBTQIA+ community’s contributions to the English language. This playful, richly illustrated visual dictionary is the perfect book for anyone who has ever wondered about the origin of phrases like “boi,” “drag,” or “demisexual,” the history of the word “queer,” and the wonderfully diverse, wide-ranging histories that have contributed to LGBTQIA+ culture and vocabulary. Drawing from traditions as divergent as the ancient poet Sappho to the underground ball scene of the 1980s, from the Stonewall Riots to RuPaul’s Drag Race, this glossary is a colorful compendium—and a celebration of every king, queen, butch, femme, trans, folx, and enby who has shaped the history, identity, and limitless imagination of queerness.

About the Author

Chloe O. Davis is a performer, choreographer, and author who works in the entertainment industry in New York City. Davis’s work as a creative artist has allowed her to travel to all fifty states and internationally. She has performed at premier theaters, including Broadway, The Metropolitan Opera, and the Kennedy Center, and has appeared in film/TV features, like Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom on Netflix, Harlem on Amazon, and Tell Me A Story on Paramount+. She also has choreographed for theatre and has won a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Choreography.

Davis’s debut book, The Queens’ English, The LGBTQIA+ Dictionary for Lingo and Colloquial Phrases celebrates the etymological diversity of over eight hundred terms to describe the collective gay and queer experience. She believes this dictionary is a starting point for the important conversations around inclusivity, sexuality, gender expression, and gender identity. The Queens’ English reached international audiences and was released in the UK. Davis is excited to announce that her new edition, The Queens’ English, The Young Readers’ LGBTQIA+ Dictionary of Lingo and Colloquial Phrases is now released with Simon & Schuster publishing.
