The visibility of the U.S. LGBTQ+ movement and the strength of its voices stems from the heroes who fought for equality and self-expression. This book discusses the lives and impact of these heroes by exploring their march toward progress, from the early sparks of the movement before Stonewall to the prolific activists of today. Readers will gain an understanding of the creative efforts activists and professionals put into advocating for their legal, professional, and personal needs, and they will come away with an understanding of why that representation matters.
