A vibrantly illustrated celebration of transgender, non-binary and genderqueer icons.

Prepare to meet the gender trailblazers of past and present - who dress and express themselves however they choose!

Featuring icons from across art, sports, fashion, music, politics, civil rights and the media, this vibrantly illustrated book introduces children age 5+ to transgender, non-binary and genderqueer role-models who dare to be different - and are conquering the world as they go.

Packed with the triumphant tales of 25 gender heroes - including Laverne Cox, Elliott Page, Marsha P. Johnson, Gavin Grimm and Alok Vaid-Menon, as well as a glossary of key terms, this is an inspirational introduction for kids and educators alike - and a timely reminder that not all heroes wear capes...

Representation is key to helping the next generation of queer people - and this book is bursting with so many amazing role models that you can't fail to be inspired to be the best version of yourself. Full of colour, warmth, and divine illustrations - this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to be reminded of the importance of community at any age. - Ben Pechey, author of The Book of Non-Binary Joy

Gender Heroes is a bright and beautiful book for a generation of young people who will be able to learn about such a rich tapestry of LGBTQ+ individuals. Essential for schools! - Jamie Windust, author of In Their Shoes: Navigating Non-Binary Life
