This is an incredible look at the history of the LGBT+ movement aimed at 11-14 years old.

This is a book that should be in every school and library. The erasure of LGBT+ history has been constant up until relatively recently and this book goes a way to address this.

Of course it isn't a definite history of the movement and while it is inclusive of many parts of the movement and the community, there are some omissions (intersex people and their history most notably, and not quite enough on a sexua

This is exactly the book I have been looking for to add to my school library - the kids are going to be thrilled with it! For such a slender book, there's a huge amount of ground covered here, with a decent global view of queer history around the world, and good representation of the trans community's role in the history of LGBTQ rights.

I have my quibbles with various things in the book, but they're all minor details. I'm just really happy I can finally give my students a book on LGBTQ history t
This is a really useful overview of the LGBTQ+ movement which I think is primarily aimed at young people, but it's suitable for all ages if you're looking for an introduction. It's visually engaging with lots of colour and different formats and covers a comprehensive range of topics within the movement - from evidence of LGBTQ+ people in ancient history, to key legal milestones, to LGBTQ+ icons in a range of industries such as music, film and sport.

More importantly, it included useful definitio

This is a great, easy to read and comprehensive guide to the history of the LBGTQ+ rights movement. It literally includes everything someone needs to know, it's very colourful and easy to understand, and very informative! I don't want to say that this is necessarily a children's book because anyone can have a copy of it, including adults. This is the first of its kind as far as I know and is amazing.

I taught an LGBTQ lesson to a class of 11-13 year olds and passed this book around the classroom

LGBTQ+ campaigner Amy Lame's summary of the history of the LGBTQ+ movement for readers aged 12+ is a brief but wide-ranging and informative read with a particular focus on the US and UK and which serves as a good introduction to some of the people who have fought for LGBTQ+ rights and the issues that the community continues to endure today.

Such an easy read. Full of interesting facts about LGBT history. Feel much more informed now and has given me some interests to read into in more detail. Would definitely recommend this book to everyone!

Seems like a good book for young people to learn about some LGBTQ history. It leans quite heavily towards gay/lesbian history, with less discussion of bisexuality/trans people than I’d like, but that might be my personal biases shining through.

This would be an excellent book for a young teenager, not so much an adult. There wasn't a whole lot for me to learn here and while colourful, it's layout is not for me.
