From Gay to Z: A Queer Compendium is a celebration of the rich legacy of LGBTQIA+ culture, told through the letters of the alphabet, based on the five-part show The gAybcs.

From ABBA to addiction, hair and makeup to HIV, Fannie Flagg to fierce, author Justin Sayre offers his own perspective on the things that have influenced gay culture today, including iconic figures, historical moments, ongoing issues in the LGBTQIA+ community, and everything in between.

As gay culture is always evolving and different for everyone, this book does not serve as a definitive guide–instead, Sayre encourages readers to use this knowledge to reflect on the things that have informed their personal identities. Engagingly written and beautifully designed, From Gay to Z is a distinctive and dynamic look at gay culture for LGBTQIA+ readers everywhere.

– STRONG VOICE AND ENGAGING CONTENT: Sayre’s writing is lively, engaging, and rich. Each chapter has its own style and contains humorous anecdotes, facts, commentary, and more-all told through Sayre’s animated, authoritative voice.
– BELOVED, WELL-KNOWN AUTHOR: Sayre is active and well-known in the LGBTQIA+ community and beyond. He’s been recognized as one of LA’s 16 Most Talented LGBT Comics by Frontiers magazine. As an activist, Justin’s charity benefit show, Night of a Thousand Judys, raises money for the Ali Forney Center for Homeless LGBT youth and is now in its 7th year.
