    My inclination when I started the book was four stars and although I've debated somewhat, I'm choosing to stick with that - primarily because there were people and events discussed in this book that I didn't know about and I appreciated that thoroughness. I appreciated as well that the...

    I received an ARC copy of this book from Edelweiss actual rating: 3.5 I do have some issues with some of the language used in this book, but overall it is filled with a lot of good information. I did like how it talks about how the language we use to describe different orientatio...

    Updated to add that these issues are still in the finished copy. Keeping in mind that I read this as a physical arc and not as a finished edition, I had many issues with this title. It's fairly good for what it is, but there are some really big red flags on this text. I don't know i...

    I'm quite disappointed with this one. It might be something I return to later, but I feel as though there's a lot of reaching going on here, in addition to some misrepresentation through diction. First, the early history is mostly spent on people's friendships. While I do believe som...

    This book is such a ball of YIKES I'm DNFing it 50 pages in, with a quick skip to the backmatter as well. I know some other reviews have mentioned some of these concerns from the ARC but just to reiterate/add to them from the finished copy: the author incorrectly and inconsistently def...

    Although it was a long, it did discuss historical events in queer history that I did not know and never would have thought of. It does open your eyes how far LGBTQ history has come and the work that still has to be done. ...

    Haven?t read it, but saw a screenshot of the page saying asexuality is a temporary phase. ??? So, it?s an untrustworthy book. Which is too bad because a great book on this topic is needed. ...

    This is an incredibly important book for everyone, not just those that identify themselves as LGBTQ+ I wish my memory was good enough to remember all the amazing stories of the brave people profiled in this book, it's not. But what I really took away is how suppressed the history of LG...

    This book does in depth on the history of queer people starting with the indigenous people and specific tribal beliefs on the matter. This book covers many stories of queer people throughout the history of the united states and the author does their best to use terminology fitting to t...

    I read this book to see if it would be a good one for my 13-year-old niece. I think she's a bit too young for this right now but I can see it being good for her next year (with her parents' consent). I want to preface the review by saying that the definition of asexual in the glossa...

    I was going to read this, but slowly going down the reviews as this is a 2.94 book I was cautious. Which lead me to a link of the author being acephobic. YIKES NO. GET OUT. LEAVE MY LIFE. BYEEEE! P.S. Here's the twitter Thread ...

    The exclusion of asexuality as a full, substantive identity and historically present part of the queer community belies a lack of research and/or general knowledge of queer history. It is placed in scare quotes and the author claims that asexuality is "recent" (it is not). The author p...
