Welcome to Ariel
Founded in 1985 by Jane Blanks Ariel started as an expansive bookshop in Paddington. Following a location in the rocks, Ariel is now located in Darlinghurst. The shop remains an institution in Sydney for all things print & literature..
We love Art & Design, Architecture, Interiors and everything in between. We're not all about the coffee-table times, though. There's a wealth of fiction, non-fiction, film, theatre, poetry and children's books as well as plenty of eclectic hard to find stuff and miscellaneous quirky gift brilliance too.

I am inviting you to a book launch event where I will be giving a presentation of key research findings and showing a short documentary, followed by a Q & A.
What will it be about?
There are more colours to the rainbow than you might realize. While awareness, acceptance and inclusion around sexual orientation has been increasing, there is one expression that is virtually unknown: ambisexuality.
My PhD investigated the sociology of trans women sex work in Sydney and San Francisco. Subsequent post-doc study investigated the sexual orientation of men who are attracted to non-operative trans women. These two bodies of research were combined and written into a book accessible to the general public - Ambisexuality: The Anatomy of Transerotic Desire.
I look forward to seeing you there.
