'Fun and fact-filled' SUSAN STRYKER

This inspiring collection of illustrated portraits celebrates the lives of influential transgender, non-binary and intersex figures throughout history.

Showcasing the diversity of gender identities and expressions that have existed in all cultures alongside developments from recent years, the extraordinary stories in this book highlight the achievements and legacies of those who have fought to be themselves, whatever their gender. From activists, soldiers and historical leaders through to pirates, actors and artists, this book explores the life and times of over fifty trans and intersex trailblazers in their fight for equality, acceptance and change.

Poignant, educational and empowering, these are the gender pioneers everyone needs to know about.

This is a short and sweet collection of mini-biographies of various gendery icons throughout history. They’ve included Lili Elbe for the intersex icon, and I think that’s neat! I enjoyed this book, but it was very short. Three and a half stars, rounded up for NetGalley/Goodreads. Booksweet link.
