Rainbow Revolutionaries brings to life the vibrant histories of fifty pioneering LGBTQ+ people our history books forgot to mention. Through Sarah Prager’s (Queer, There, and Everywhere) short, engaging bios, and Sarah Papworth’s bold, dynamic art, readers can delve into the lives of Wen of Han, a Chinese emperor who loved his boyfriend as much as his people; Martine Rothblatt, a trans woman who’s helping engineer the robots of tomorrow, and so many more! This book is a celebration of the many ways these hidden heroes have made a difference and will inspire young readers to make a difference, too.
