Synopsis

Gay People Who Changed History by Adam Sutherland

Learn about the actions of gay history makers in this book, ranging from the pioneering campaigning of Henry Gerber and Larry Kramer to the Stonewall community's expressions of protest and the groundbreaking artistic careers of Oscar Wilde, Ellen DeGeneres and Sir Elton John. Explore the lives of those who made their mark on history, from political protest to raising millions for charity and from celebrating identity to speaking out against injustice. The History Makers series looks at the lives of significant figures from the past and present, who, by their ideas and actions, affected the course of history in their own countries and across the world.
