Queer, There, and Everywhere: Book Launch & Reading

 

Start celebrating Pride early this year! Join activist Sarah Prager to hear incredible stories from her new queer history book, "Queer, There, and Everywhere: 23 People Who Changed the World," out on May 23 from HarperCollins. After a reading, Sarah will answer your questions and sign copies of the book. Copies will be available for sale.

Suggested donation of $10 to benefit the Bureau. No one turned away for lack of funds. Free for ages 18 and under!

“Queer, There, and Everywhere is so conversational, fast paced, and infused with pop culture sensibilities that it tricks you into forgetting it’s a series of (incredibly timely) biographies. An absolute must-read for people interested in their queer forebears, or for anyone who doesn’t already know the majesty of Elagabalus, Empress of Rome.”
—Meredith Russo, author of Stonewall Award-winner If I Was Your Girl

“Accessible, irreverent, and meticulously researched, at times heartbreaking and just as often wildly funny, this stunningly diverse survey of queer histories is a nourishing and inspiring addition to our arsenal of queer possibilities. Should be required reading for all of us, queer or not.”
—Sarah McCarry, author of the LAMBDA Award-nominated About a Girl

“Sarah Prager does the impossible: she takes several millennia of complicated history and makes it accessible and fun. Prager tells us twenty-three fascinating stories, some of them new twists on familiar ones (like Abraham Lincoln) as well as ones about figures that history has nearly forgotten, mixing light-hearted humor with impeccable scholarship so that the reader keeps turning the page to see ‘what’s next.’ In short, Prager combines fun and facts to present an unforgettable overview of two thousand years of queer history.”
–Kevin Jennings, Founder of GLSEN, and Former Assistant Deputy Secretary of the US Department of Education, and author of Becoming Visible: A Reader in Gay and Lesbian History for High School & College Students
