- Being Jazz byTeen advocate and trailblazer Jazz Jennings—named one of “The 25 Most Influential Teens” of the year by Time —shares her very public transgender journey, as she inspires people to accept the differences in others while they embrace their own truths.
- Eating Fire (eBook) byWhen Kelly Cogswell plunged into New York's East Village in 1992, she had just come out. An ex-Southern Baptist born in Kentucky, she was camping in an Avenue B loft, scribbling poems, and playing in an underground band, trying to figure out her next move. A couple of months later she was consumed by the Lesbian Avengers, instigating direct action campaigns, battling cops on Fifth Avenue, mobilizing 20,000 dykes for a march on Washington, D.C., and eating fire-literally-in front of the White House. Memoir.
- LGBTQ in the 21st Century byA collection of essays and studies. Nonfiction.
- The Stonewall Reader byThe Stonewall Reader is a collection of first accounts, diaries, periodic literature, and articles from LGBTQ magazines and newspapers that documented both the years leading up to and the years following the riots. Most importantly the anthology spotlights both iconic activists who were pivotal in the movement, such as Sylvia Rivera, co-founder of Street Transvestites Action Revolutionaries (STAR), as well as forgotten figures like Ernestine Eckstein, one of the few out, African American, lesbian activists in the 1960s.
Featured eBook Titles
- Transforming Prejudice bySupport for transgender individuals lags far behind that of gays and lesbians; a significant majority of Americans do not support the right of transgender people to be free from discrimination in housing, employment, public spaces, health care, legal documents, and other areas. In this book, Melissa R. Michelson and Brian F. Harrison examine what tactics are effective in changing public opinion regarding transgender people.
- Travels in a Gay Nation byFor this collection of 40 interviews, Gambone traveled the nation for two years, talking with LGBTQ people to repudiate a “portrait of our community that . . . is often a sadly impoverished one” and “to open up a wider panorama than the tiny, cramped window that currently looks out onto LGBTQ America.” Nonfiction.
- We Have Always Been Here: A Queer Muslim Memoir byA triumphant memoir of forgiveness and family, both chosen and not, We Have Always Been Here is a rallying cry for anyone who has ever felt out of place and a testament to the power of fearlessly inhabiting one's truest self.
- What's Your Pronoun? byBased on Baron's own empirical research, What's Your Pronoun? chronicles the story of the role pronouns have played—and continue to play—in establishing both our rights and our identities. It is an essential work in understanding how twenty-first-century culture has evolved.
