Horn Book - Kitty Flynn

"This collective biography includes brief profiles of influential LBGTQ figures from the arts (e.g., Andy Warhol), entertainment (George Takei), science (Neena Schwartz), politics (Sharice Davids), activism (Bayard Rustin), sports (Billie Jean King), and business (Tim Cook). Each two-page entry comprises a paragraph or two sketching out highlights of an individual's life, accomplishments, and legacy on the verso and a photograph on the recto. Clemesha shares his personal story in an introductory note." - Horn Book

"[Clemesha's] book, aimed at middle-graders, offers a series of two-page spreads—a full-page photo and a page of text—about LGBTQ Americans who have excelled in their fields.

Many of the figures are contemporary or nearly so, but Clemesha also weaves in earlier figures. It’s a nice balance.

Clemesha conveys each person’s impact simply and clearly..." - Mombian
