Wisconsin Historical Society releases first book for teen readers on LGBTQ+ history

by | Jul 1, 2021 | 0 comments

The Wisconsin Historical Society Press has released its first book for teen readers on LGBTQ+ history, We Will Always Be Here: A Guide to Exploring and Understanding the History of LGBTQ+ Activism in Wisconsin by Jenny Kalvaitis and Kristen Whitson. The book presents examples of LGBTQ+ activism throughout Wisconsin’s history for young people to explore and discuss. Inspired by the history presented in R. Richard Wagner’s two-volume Society Press series on gay history in Wisconsin, We Will Always Be Here draws from a rich collection of primary sources—including diary entries, love letters, zines, advertisements, oral histories, and more—to provide a jumping-off point for readers who are interested in learning more about LGBTQ+ history and activism.

We Will Always Be Here shines a light on powerful and often untold stories, featuring individuals across a wide spectrum of identities and from all corners of the state. Featured LGBTQ+ people, allies, and activists changed their world by taking steps that young people can take today—by educating themselves, telling their own stories, being true to themselves, and building communities.
