World history has been made by countless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and otherwise queer people-and you’ve never heard of many of them. In Queer, There, and Everywhere, activist Sarah Prager gives voice to twenty-three people who invented, radicalized, and trailblazed. These inspiring true stories demonstrate how rich and varied gender and sexuality have been in every culture, to every millennium. From long-ago heroes like the gender-ambiguous Queen of Sweden and a transgender soldier who risked death lighting in the Civil War to modern figures like the transgender tennis player who won a court case to play as a woman and a drag queen who organized against police brutality in San Francisco: not only have queer people always existed, they have thrived.
