Over 40 empowering speeches celebrating the LGBTQ+ community in their own words through extracts and commissioned illustrations, spanning throughout history up to the modern day.

Discover the inspiring voices that have changed our world, and started a new conversation. A sister title to Great Women’s Speeches (2021), and the pocket edition of Loud and Proud (2020), Great LGBTQ+ Speeches is a pioneering collection of over 40 empowering and influential speeches that chart the history of the LGBTQ+ movement. Photocollage portraits and enlightening commentaries accompany the words of Audre Lorde, Harvey Milk, Munroe Bergdorf, Sir Elton John and more. Together these speakers touch on all aspects of LGBTQ+ life from equal marriage to the AIDS crisis, bullying to parenthood, the first 19th century campaigns through to trans rights allyship today. We are stronger when we stand together, and this collection from award-winning activist Tea Uglow encourages us to do just that whilst celebrating the beauty of our differences.
