Marsha P. Johnson, Keith Haring, Harvey Milk, Audre Lorde, Peter Tatchell, RuPaul… the names of pioneers and trailblazers who have advanced the LGBT cause and helped bring about new human rights.
This book pays tribute in 50 portraits to the activists, personalities, writers and artists who have advanced the LGBT movement and celebrates those who have fought and are fighting every day to create a more inclusive and tolerant world.
The graphic beauty of the book makes you want to come back to it regularly.

This book was amazing.
Not only having brilliant art work and interesting snippets of history and how integral all of these people are to queer history and how they change the world - through movements or law changes but it also included powerful quotes from all of the people.
My two favourites being:
"rights are won only by those who make their voices heard"-Harvey Milk
"If you want know who the oppressed minorities in America are, simply look at who gets their own shelf in the bookstore"- Armistead Maupin.
This book is suitable for all ages and covers every part of the LGBTQIA+ spectrum highlighting that true pride is inclusive to all.
This was a lovely collection composed of very influential individuals in the LGBTQI+ movement. It was really beautifully written and was informative, I highly recommend it.
Engaging, educational and completely captivating read, look at a diverse range of LGBTQI+ people who made their own huge impact on our world. I will definitely be buying this book for our Sixth Form library.
Thank you so much to the publisher and NetGalley for sending me this arc!! I enjoyed reading this book, it was very informative and reading about how much our queer elders have sacrificed made me tear up. +Plus there were no grammatical or spelling errors that I noticed whatsoever:)
Absolutely adored this, a creative but concise resource to learn about the pillars both famous and forgotten of the queer community that got us to where we are today. Whether through protest, legal action, organisation, archiving, awareness or more.
Perfect to educate all but also a cute and creative coffee table book for an queers in their new home.
Will definitely be buying a hard copy of this at some point or another
"50 LGBTQI+ who changed the world" is, in my opinion, a fantastic resource for LGBTQ allies who want to learn more about the profound people who have helped in the fight for equity. Even as a member of the LGBTQ community, there were several names I did not recognize, and I feel more informed knowing who they are and the impact they had. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a bite size, fragmented view of LGBTQ individuals, with condensed, summarized views on each person's impact and legacy. I also enjoyed the illustrations in addition to the photo collages. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, particularly someone who wants to learn more about the LGBTQ community, although for more in depth analysis of the individuals profiled, a person should seek out (or supplement with) other materials.
