Gay and Lesbian History is an eye-opening read for those with little to no knowledge of the subject, an informative resource for middle school kids, and a vital mirror for LGBTQ individuals with its plethora of historical and current persons to find affirmation in. As much as this title is full of information on historical events, and persons, of importance (although US-centric), it is also a vessel for stimulating a discussion about human rights, social justice, activism, identity, and love; topics which were expressed throughout, but never developed upon outside the immediate context. The creators also included a bunch of activities, but these are fairly superfluous, the history itself is engaging, includes ample photos, is sectioned by decade, and broken up into even more manageable chunks within each part. Most middle school children should have no problem with it. Because the battle for equal rights is far from over, children need to hear about, and think about, the why's, and the what to do's. Whether you are a young LGTBQ individual in need of a hero like yourself, a heterosexual person with a desire to learn, or really just a caring human being, the Gay and Lesbian History is a great introductory title to some of the most important topics in modern times.
