    Overall I thought this was a very informative look at 23 queer individuals from history, some well known and some unheard of. I really liked Prager's conversational and humorous tone in regards to these people's lives. I learned about a lot of people I'd never even heard of and several of these smal...

    I really enjoyed reading that! I love this kind of non-fiction, even if it really is a basic sort of starter kit with a very clear bias (a bias which I also share, obvs, but which makes it seem a little less HISTORICALLY HISTORICAL and more like historical fun which...wait, why am I complaining abou...

    Today is a time when this book is just so incredibly important for some to understand that queerness has always been around before we even had words to label the acts occurring. I am approaching this from the perspective of someone who views firsthand the resistance of certain people to recognize th...

    What is remarkable, and at once unsurprising, is that all twenty-three of these queer people lived with such vivd, incandescent variety. Diversity is one of the only constants that queerness has always had, and our unique individuals are connected precisely because they diverged from what society ex...
