Staff Reviews


It's no surprise that Sarah Prager, creator of the Quist app for daily queer history, has produced a book that is fun and informative. Queer, There, and Everywhere is an accessible, diverse, respectful, and fascinating read for teens and adults alike. It has frequent explanations for terms and their history, an extensive glossary, and many additional resources. Prager writes with a clear understanding of the importance of passing on queer history, which is so often covered up or forgotten, and does so in a way that is engaging and imparts on the reader the significance of this cultural ancestry. -Amy

Description


This first-ever LGBTQ history book of its kind for young adults will appeal to fans of fun, empowering pop-culture books like Rad American Women A-Z and Notorious RBG. Three starred reviews

World history has been made by countless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals--and you've never heard of many of them.

Queer author and activist Sarah Prager delves deep into the lives of 23 people who fought, created, and loved on their own terms. From high-profile figures like Abraham Lincoln and Eleanor Roosevelt to the trailblazing gender-ambiguous Queen of Sweden and a bisexual blues singer who didn't make it into your history books, these astonishing true stories uncover a rich queer heritage that encompasses every culture, in every era.

By turns hilarious and inspiring, the beautifully illustrated Queer, There, and Everywhere is for anyone who wants the real story of the queer rights movement.
