Waterstones Says

Featuring contributors from Naoise Dolan to Amrou Al-Kadhi and covering topics including mental health, representation and education, this wide-ranging anthology is a potent roadmap for LGBTQ+ rights.

How can we create a better world for LGBTQ+ people? 35 extraordinary voices share their stories and visions for the future.

'A vital addition to your bookshelf' - Stylist, 5 Books for Summer

We talk about achieving 'LGBTQ+ equality', but around the world, LGBTQ+ people are still suffering discrimination and extreme violence. How do we solve this urgent problem, allowing queer people everywhere the opportunity to thrive?

In We Can Do Better Than This, 35 voices explore this question. Through deeply moving stories and provocative new arguments on safety and visibility, dating and gender, care and community, they map new global frontiers in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights.

Pabllo Vittar pleads for the end of hate murders, Olly Alexander champions inclusive sex education in schools, and Beth Ditto calls for a revolution in representation. Elsewhere, Mykki Blanco sets out a vision to end HIV stigma, Owen Jones demands improved LGBTQ+ mental health services, and Travis Alabanza imagines a world without gender policing.

Moving from the UK and USA to Russia, Bangladesh and beyond, this is a guide to understanding the crucial issues facing LGBTQ+ people today. But it's also a passionate call to action and an important manifesto for how - together - we can start to create a better future.

Edited by journalist and author Amelia Abraham, with writing from:
