"Queer Heroes" by Arabelle Sicardi and Sarah Tanat-Jones (Wide Eyed Editions)

Here's a fantastic book celebrating some truly inspirational and amazing folk, queer folk at that!

In "Queer Heroes" by Arabelle Sicardi and Sarah Tanat-Jones meet 53 (wow, count them! 53!) of the world's greatest LGBTQ heroes from history and the present day.

This superbly eye-catching book features dynamic full-colour portraits of a diverse selection of 53 inspirational role models accompanied by short biographies that focus on their incredible successes. 

From the world of music and the powerful voice and supreme songwriting talents of Freddie Mercury, back in history to Leonardo da Vinci's artistic legend and forward once in time to learn how Harvey Milk's refusal to stay quiet was pivotal in the gay rights movement, setting the foundations for many changes in the law worldwide. 

Published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, this extraordinary book will show children that anything is possible.

Sum this book up in a sentence: Discover the inspiring stories of these LGBT artists, writers, innovators, athletes, and activists who have made great contributions to culture, from ancient times to present day
