The telling of Queer history cannot be straightforward. How could it be?
Germany’s queer history has long been neglected. And so queer life has only been debated in recent decades – even though homosexual movements fought exclusion and discrimination as far back as the German Empire. How can the history of same-sex love and gender nonconformism be told? What does German history look like from a queer perspective? And what of the notion of a straight line of emancipation, from same-sex marriage to the abolition of the German Transsexual Law, which will hopefully happen soon? Queer is the first popular non-fiction book to explore these questions via an exciting historical overview. An indispensable basis for the debates of our time.
