One of 2004's top ten books

-- Richard Labonte

Finalist, 2005 Lambda Literary Awards

  Edited by Claude J. Summers

The first authoritative guide to all things queer and musical: pop, rock, jazz, disco, dance, opera and musical theater.

What did Alvin Ailey's mother do when she first saw him in stage makeup? Why did George Frideric Handel censor his unpub-
lished pastoral cantatas in the 1730s? How many degrees separate Gore Vidal from Cole Porter's 1948 Broadway musical, Kiss Me Kate? Find the answers--and much, much more--in The Queer Encyclopedia of Music, Dance and Musical Theater.

Drawn from glbtq.com, the online encyclopedia of queer arts and culture which The Advocate dubbed "Encyclopedia Britanni-
queer," this compendium of all things queer and beautiful features more than 200 articles on composers, choreographers, singers, musicians and dancers across eras and styles.

Perfect for settling arguments or for a serene hour by a sunny window, this is the kind of reference book you can't tear yourself away from, with authoritative overviews on genres and gay-themed works and biographical entries on figures like Jerome Robbins, Nöel Coward, Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Maurice Ravel, Sergei Diaghilev, Bessie Smith, Stephen Sondheim, Rufus Wainwright and Ani DiFranco.

Available now at Amazon Books, Cleis Press and your local bookseller.
