Andrew Reynolds presents The Children of Harvey Milk: How LGBTQ Politicians Changed the World, in conversation with Jasmine Beach-Ferrara

This event is co-sponsored by the Campaign for Southern Equality

Part political thriller, part meditation on social change, part love story, The Children of Harvey Milk tells the epic stories of courageous men and women around the world who came forward to make their voices heard during the struggle for equal rights.

Featuring LGBTQ icons from America to Ireland, Britain to New Zealand; Reynolds documents their successes and failures, heartwarming stories of acceptance and heartbreaking stories of ostracism, demonstrating the ways in which an individual can change the views and voting behaviors of those around them. The book also includes rare vignettes of LGBTQ leaders in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean who continue to fight for equality in spite of threats, violence, and homophobia.

A touchstone narrative of the tumultuous journey towards LGBTQ rights, The Children of Harvey Milk is a must-read for anyone with an interest in social change
