  Edited by Claude J. Summers

The entertaining, authoritative, and concise guide to all things queer in film and television.

Film and TV aficionados will relish this volume celebrating the actors, directors, screenwriters, and producers whose queer sensibilities infuse our popular culture with brilliance, drama, and wit.

How did Liberace's costumes almost kill him?
* Which lesbian comedian spent her high school years as "the best white cheerleader in Detroit"?** For these answers and more, dip into The Queer Encyclopedia of Film & Television. Drawn from glbtq.com--dubbed the "Encyclopedia Britanniqueer" by The Advocate--this is the only reference book in which Tallulah Bankhead, Jean Cocteau, Judy Garland, Gus Van Sant, and Christine Vachon jostle for space. From Dorothy Arzner to John Waters, from Alla Nazimova to Divine, and from Paul Lynde to Ellen DeGeneres, it's a queer, queer world. The Queer Encyclopedia of Film & Television is your indispensable guide: entertaining, authoritative, and concise. And perfect to read by candelabra.

Answers:
*  From inhaling the dry cleaning fumes
** Lily Tomlin
