Queer people have been around for centuries, and they’ve been doing amazing things that have helped make the world the place it is today. If you are, think you might be, or know someone who is, or might be, queer this book is a must read. A collection of short, readable biographies from a Roman emperor to George Takei.

An engaging historical anthology of LGBTQ persons. Some of the people discussed in this book might be familiar to readers, but many more may not be. A must read for anyone, teen or adult, who wants to learn more about the queer community. The author also includes references in the back, for readers who wish to further expand their knowledge.

I highly recommend this engaging and empowering book.
