Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>A New York Public Library Best Book of 2017</p> <p>A Chicago Public Library Best of the Best Book for Teens 2017</p> <p>This first-ever LGBTQ history book of its kind for young adults will appeal to fans of fun, empowering pop-culture books like Rad American Women A-Z and Notorious RBG. Three starred reviews!</p> <p>World history has been made by countless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals--and you've never heard of many of them.</p> <p>Queer author and activist Sarah Prager delves deep into the lives of 23 people who fought, created, and loved on their own terms. From high-profile figures like Abraham Lincoln and Eleanor Roosevelt to the trailblazing gender-ambiguous Queen of Sweden and a bisexual blues singer who didn't make it into your history books, these astonishing true stories uncover a rich queer heritage that encompasses every culture, in every era.</p> <p>By turns hilarious and inspiring, the beautifully illustrated Queer, There, and Everywhere is for anyone who wants the real story of the queer rights movement.</p> <p>A Junior Library Guild Selection</p>
