Queer Hauntings: True Tales of Gay and Lesbian Ghosts is a collection of eerie locales worldwide with a queer bent, combining historical fact and unearthly encounters from across the United States, as well as around the globe. From haunted bars in New Orleans to a haunted theater in London, this guide encompasses the other side of the supernatural.
The stories range from the serious, from brutal murders in rural Georgia, to the light-hearted, including the male spirit who enjoys unzipping men's trousers at a British pub. Ghosts of legendary celebrities intermingle with ordinary individuals.
Along with these queer spirits are many businesses, either gay-owned or catering to a gay/lesbian clientele, experiencing hauntings. Clubs and bars hide more than shy young lovers in their darkened corners. Countless bed and breakfasts have otherworldly guests staying the night. Behind the shadows and doors of societal homophobia hide find pink phantoms and lavender apparitions in cities and towns spread across the globe.

I really enjoyed this book. I've always been interested in the paranormal and as the author points out in the beginning I've always wondered about the LGBT people who have passed and why I never get to read their stories. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
What did you like best about Queer Hauntings: True Tales of Gay & Lesbian Ghosts? What did you like least?
The narrator did a good job, but I was disappointed about the contents.
It was more like a brief background of an establishment in the US and the address so you can go visit it.
