Generation Queer

By: Kimm Topping

Generation Queer: Stories of LGBTQ+ Youth is the first illustrated biography collection of its kind to focus on queer and trans youth who are leaders in social change.

The thirty young trailblazers featured in Generation Queer are representative of a generation that values intersectional, collaborative, social justice. This young adult book is for the reader who is interested in seeing youth at the forefront of social movements. Most importantly, this book is for young people who are seeking out resources made for them. In the words of Marian Wright Edelman, “You can’t be what you can’t see.” This book will young people to advocate for themselves and their communities, much like the thirty youth of Generation Queer.

From grassroots organizers like Lillian Lennon in Alaska who founded Trans Leadership, to Sameer Jha who founded The Empathy Alliance at 14-years-old, to Indya Moore bringing Black, transgender representation to people’s television screens in Pose, to Gavin Grimm who successfully advocated for access to restrooms for transgender students, to Schuyler Bailar who became the first transgender athlete to compete in Division I sports, and many more; these thirty young people are shifting cultural stereotypes about who is allowed to lead.
