Queer Heroes: Meet 53 LGBTQ Heroes From Past and Present!

by Arabelle Sicardi Author and Sarah Tanat-Jones Author

This beautifully illustrated book celebrates more than one hundred years of queer history, and more than fifty queer heroes. Published to mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, Queer Heroes is full of celebrities, artists, TV personalities, actors, athletes, innovators, and activists who have either been forced to remain closeted because of the times in which they lived, or proudly stood up and announced their queerness to the world, and in doing so made it a safer and more accepting place today than it otherwise might be. An important book for teaching young people about how important queer folk have been throughout history, and how omnipresent they are in today's world.
