Over 50 empowering speeches celebrating the LGBTQ+ community in their own words through extracts and commissioned illustrations, spanning throughout history up to the modern day.
A sister volume to So Here I Am: Speeches by Great Women to Empower and Inspire, this seminal collection places the loud and proud voices of the vibrant LGBTQ+ community centre stage. From equal marriage to gender definitions, bullying to parenthood, the issues covered in these speeches touch on all aspects of LGBTQ+ and reflect the diverse and multi-faceted nature of this community.
Experienced public speaker and Creative Director for Googles Creative Lab Sydney Tea Uglow introduces each speech with a concise bio of the remarkable person who delivered it.
