This book explains civil rights, and the reasons why LGBTQ+ people have had to fight for equal rights, in an accessible way for younger readers.

Included is a foreword by Amy Lame, who is a prominent LGBTQ+ activist and advocate, broadcaster and London Night Czar.


This chronological selection of key civil rights moments and movements explains in a child-friendly way the reasons why LGBTQ+ people have faced prejudice, violence and closed minds, and the ways they have overcome many obstacles on the path to equality. It looks at historical examples, such as attitudes in ancient Egypt and early LGBTQ+ organisations, along with modern events, such as the alarm over the cause of HIV/AIDS, Pride marches, same-sex marriage and transgender rights.

Prominent civil rights campaigners and figures are featured and a timeline helps readers to see at a glance how the fight for LGBTQ+ rights has evolved over time. Sensitive illustrations illuminate the text and help readers to understand some of the harder concepts. Death and violence are mentioned, but are wholly in context and are written about in a non-alarmist way with the age of the reader very much in mind.

The Civil Rights Stories series is a vital resource for younger readers aged 7+ who are being introduced to these topics or are studying them in school.
