Annotation "Explore the history to trans and nonbinary people throughout history and the world in this gorgeously illustrated nonfiction book for young teens. Readers will be educated and enlightened about trans and nonbinary people who have made a difference in our world and who continue to help raise awareness of diversity and inclusion in current society. Introductory materials give readers an insight into pronoun usage, trans rights around the globe, the history of the word "transgender," and more before providing engaging and fascinating information about twenty-eight trans and nonbinary heroes who have helped shape our world. From Callon of Epidaurus (the first intersex individual to receive surgery) to Lili Elbe and Elliot Page (a trans actor) to Tomoya Hosoda (the first trans politician in Japan), this book will open up dialogue and help educate young adults on the history, legacy, and future of trans and nonbinary people and their rights at a time when protecting those rights is needed more than ever. The book is complete with sidebars about trans topics, a reference guide, and a glossary of terminology." -- Provided by publisher. -- For junior and senior high readers.
