Last year I recieved an ARC of the non-fiction book Queer Heroes: Meet 53 LGBTQ Heroes From Past and Present! by Arabelle Sicardi and Sarah Tanat-Jones through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
This beautiful, bold book celebrates the achievements of LGBT people through history and from around the world. It features full-color portraits of a diverse selection of 52 inspirational role models accompanied by short biographies that focus on their incredible successes, from Freddie Mercury's contribution to music to Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, this title will show children that anything is possible.

My Thoughts on the Book
Queer Heroes had a variety of people from lots of different places and it had some really great and colourful illustrations. It also had a glossary and additional resources listed, which was neat. The majority of the people in this book covered the LGB-part of LGBT+, but there were a couple of trans and I wish there were more trans showed in this book in addition to asexual and the more marginalized groups within the LGBT+ community.
