This is a very good book for adults as well as children. As a gay man, who struggled with my sexuality for years, before accepting myself fully about 1976; I thought I had a good knowledge of the struggle for equality. I have lived much of it. But this book included a lot I didn't know. I would have appreciated something about the struggle for acceptance of lgbt people in churches. I was a Lutheran minister for 19 years until I lost my job and was removed from the clergy roster in 1991. I was a minister in the ELCA, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The ELCA changed its policy about 4 years ago and now welcomes lgbt clergy. I was welcomed as a minister in the United Church of Christ 8 years ago. The UCC ordained its first openly gay man in 1972. But despite not including much about gays in the church, it is a great overview of our journey as lgbt folks. I was very pleased that transgender people were included. I will recommend the book to young people and adults in our church.
Lesbian always goes first. Out of respect for the work Lesbians have done/organized, recognizing the misogyny/ignoring Lesbians exist, recognizing many woman’s safety & body rights issues, and how unequal pay damages Lesbians for generations, & for all the work during the HIV crisis. The title is an insult and tells us that they are very male centered, misogynistic, & probably are not intersectional.
