Delve into a captivating collection of traditional folk tales that explore LGBTQ themes in Queer Folk Tales by Kevin Walker. 

From ancient myths to modern retellings, this anthology brings to life a diverse range of stories that challenge heteronormative narratives and celebrate the diversity of queer experiences.


The prince no longer kisses the princess, Cinderella helps her new husband to pick a new dress and the relationship between Mr Wolf and the three little pigs is a bit more complicated than you might have thought.

In this collection of delightful, empowering and often magical tales, Kevin Walker creates and adapts a host of stories for the LGBTQ+ community. These sometimes traditional and sometimes modern tales show queer people that they belong not only in today's world, but also in a storytelling tradition going back centuries, if not millennia. This is a wonderful collection for LGBTQ+ readers of all ages to enjoy and continue to tell for years to come, introducing characters who are romantic, brave, mysterious or fantastical - but always authentic.
