4.2  ·  Rating Details ·  10 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
Those who have changed the face of homosexuality over the centuries are not completely heroic. Learn about the first great gay activist Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, read of brave men and women of the Matachine Society and of the Stonewall riot, and relive the stories of the writers and artists who pushed a movement forward. Intriguing, shocking, and ultimately hopeful!

Short but very moving biographies of LGTB personalities, some better-known than others, from many nationalities and all walks of society: activists, sportspeople, artists, etc. Really interesting read with some very touching moments. An excellent way of paying tribute to the lives of those who have fought for LGTB rights or just led very brave lives in difficult times.
