Written by Desmond is Amazing and Featuring Illustratations by Dylan Glynn
In Be Amazing: A History of Pride, drag kid and LGBTQ advocate Desmond is Amazing (Desmond Napoles) walks you through the history of the LGBTQ community, all while encouraging you to embrace your own uniqueness and ignore the haters.
Desmond is amazing—and you are, too.
Throughout history, courageous people like Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera, and RuPaul have paved the way for a safer, more inclusive society for LGBTQ individuals, and it’s thanks to them that people just like Desmond can be free to be who they really are.
We need more diverse books! Be Amazing: A History of Pride is a great introduction to LGBT activism and history for children and students. It also teaches acceptance, tolerance, self confidence, and inclusivity.
