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

This is a great, easy to read and comprehensive guide to the history of the LBGTQ+ rights movement.

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.

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.
