Each chapter in this adapted history focuses on the life of a queer US American, from the 1500s to today.

From Walt Whitman to Bayard Rustin to to Rita Mae Brown to Sylvia Rivera, the book only represents a small percentage of the LGBTQ folks who shaped our country.

Sections in between chapters talk about bigger cultural movements, from the romantic same-sex friendships of the Victorian era to contemporary struggles for marriage equality and transgender rights.

An excellent grounding in terminology, ideas, and the arc of history; adults stand to learn just as much as teens from this telling.
