Summary

“For all LGBTQ teens and young adults, this book will help inspire and empower you to become your best selves.” —Dustin Lance Black, Academy Award-winning screenwriter, Milk LGBT history is as old as history itself. We Make It Better profiles people, places, and events that show just how awesome and inspiring the LGBT community is. They have served their country, served in office, pushed for the protection of human rights, and impacted all fields of study, sport, art and industry. We Make It Better offers biographies of some of the most famous thinkers and changers in history from Bayard Rustin, Alan Turing, Dr. Sally Ride, and Oscar Wilde to present-day innovators and world-changers such as Billie Jean King, Jason Collins, Ellen DeGeneres, Tim Cook, the Wachowski sisters, Sir Ian McKellen and more. But more than a “who’s who” of LGBT history, We Make It Better is also a vibrant chronicle of the events in history in which the LGBT community came together to fight for equality and to save lives. Learn how they united during the HIV/AIDs crisis, fought for marriage equality, protested discrimination, and pushed for progressive change throughout the years. Places and cultures important to the LGBT community are also proudly profiled in this enlightening mix of biographies, history, and memorable quotes.Includes photos

Only his best friend, Wroxy, has any idea of the depths of Mikey’s pain and how desperately he desires to be loved.And not even Wroxy knows what Mikey’s truly capable of—until one night when his abusers go too far. Then all the pain and loneliness inside Mikey push him to make a pact with evil to bring vengeance down upon his enemies. Being a teenager had been a nightmare before, but soon Mikey unleashes something that will make it hell on Earth . . .“Rowe’s talent shines through in this terrifying story of social persecution, black magic, and desire gone horribly wrong.” —Lee Thomas, Bram Stoker and Lambda Literary Award–winning author “Michael Rowe is one of those writers who can swing from the eloquent prose of a Peter Straub to the brutality of a Richard Laymon.” —Monster Librarian
