Polari Press

Taking their name from the secret gay slang Polari, popular in the mid-1900s, Polari Press is an independent publishing house that seeks out hidden voices and helps them be heard. Although Polari was spoken predominantly by gay and bisexual men, the nature of clandestine meetings of the era when homosexuality was still criminalised, brought together people from all walks of life who all had an influence on the language. Cockney, Romany, and Italian languages mixed with the colloquialisms of thespians, circus performers, wrestlers, sailors, and wider criminal communities to create a slang to express their sexuality secretly and safely. Inspired by these origins, they publish queer and marginalised voices, to share a diverse range of queer perspectives.

Rebecca Ronane

Age does not need to define or limit you.
My book Forward After 50, The Rising Reinventors, is about how to reframe our mindsets around ageing.
It’s for women over forty who question, ‘What’s Next’? 
After reading this book, you will realise that age is not an excuse to stop everything. It’s a place to start something new and exciting.
