Queer Heroes

by Arabelle Sicardi
illustrated by Sarah Tanat-Jones

Ref: 16539

Full colour illustrations and pocket-sized bios introduce us to 53 dashing LGBTQ Heroes from around the world and across time. International and refreshingly intersectional with many queer people of colour included in the mix. UK additions: Freddie Mercury, Alan Turing, Matthew Bourne, Virginia Woolf, David Bowie and Paralympian, Claire Harvey. Some complex histories along the way, delivered in a highly accessible format. We couldn't put it better than Mark Jennett, one of our book reviewers: 'The references, not just to colonialism but also to things like outing and passing privilege, are helpful...The tone is celebratory without being breathless and the text strikes a nice balance between facts and analysis...As well as proving inspirational to queer youth everywhere, it should find a place in every school library alongside other texts seeking to spotlight key minority figures' (Mark Jennett, Equalities Trainer/Consultant, LL reviewer). Age 8-12, Hardback 63pp
