Book cover

Della Grace
Gay Men’s Press, London 1991

Perhaps the first published photographic monograph of lesbian sexuality in the world made from an insider’s perspective. In the early 90’s ‘Love Bites’ generated a great deal of controversy and censorship in both the mainstream and lesbian/gay media. In the USA it was banned by Customs & Excise for two weeks. In Canada they cut the most ‘offensive’ photographs out of the book before selling it. In England it was sold by mainstream booksellers but not in lesbian or gay bookshops who protested they couldn’t take the risk or disagreed with the SM content. Although it has been out of print for over 10 years it is still considered a queer classic.
