Queer Heroes: Meet 53 LGBTQ Heroes From Past and Present!

Fifty-three queer role models from around the world and from the past and present are celebrated in this collection of stories of the historical and revolutionary activist figures on the front lines of the LGBTQ human rights movement. Bright and eye-catching images complement these people’s stories of activism and accomplishment. The content is timely and is appropriate for the emotional maturity and cognitive levels of young high-school students. In the classroom, teachers may introduce a particular figure every day or week, using each selection to support reading practice, offer opportunities to develop research skills, as well as to broach an important topic and allow students to connect their understand to personal or other real-life contexts.
