Tales from Beyond the Rainbow by Pete Jordi Wood

Tales from Beyond the Rainbow by Pete Jordi Wood


Ten captivating stories of adventure and resilience celebrating LGBTQ+ characters, published as an illustrated collection of queer classics for the first time.


These are the fairy tales that history forgot - or concealed. Tales in which gender is fluid and where queer stories can have a happy ending.


From the humble sailor who finds his handsome prince to the transgender market girl who becomes queen, from Europe to Asia via the African savannah, LGBTQ+ folklore researcher Pete Jordi Wood has combed through generations of history and adapted ten unforgettable stories, each illustrated by an artist who shares heritage with the culture from which the stories were born.




Global fairy tales have been joyfully reclaimed in this collection, with stories from across the world featuring LGBTQ+ characters. Representative of so many members of the community and brought to life with vibrant illustrations. - Independent
