Resistance: The LGBT Fight Against Fascism in WWII is a 2019 Lambda Literary Award Finalist. 175 pages, including 39 illustrations by international LGBTQ artists, biographies, endnotes, index, and a glossary.

London, Paris, and Berlin were exciting and vibrant hubs for LGBT culture in Europe in the 1920s and early 1930s, flush with gay clubs, newspapers, drag shows, literature, art, and more. All that changed with the rise of fascism and Hitler's power grab in 1933. In a few short years, the liberal Weimar Republic in Berlin--a progressive democracy--gave way to a Nazi-led dictatorship. Lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and transsexuals fought against the Nazis, but their struggles have often been overlooked by history books. In Resistance: The LGBT Fight Against Fascism in WWII, we honor those people.

The LGBT activists and fighters in this book include women and men from nine countries, including France, China, Germany, South Africa, the USA, and more.

Signed by the author. This important book is a collection of fully-illustrated historical biographies of LGBT freedom fighters with illustrations by 21 contemporary LGBTQ+ activists. Written by Avery Cassell, edited by Diane Kanzler, Foreword by Laura Antoniou.

Our fabulous LQBTQ+ artists include: Anne Williams, Ajuan Mance, Ashley R. Guillory, Avery Cassell, Burton Clarke, Diane Kanzler, Diego Gómez, Dorian Katz, Jennifer Camper, Jessica Bogac-Moore, Jon Macy, Justin Hall, M Rocket, Margo Rivera-Weiss, Pat Tong, Phoebe Kobabe, Rachael House, Swoizik Jaffre, Tara Avery, and Tyler Cohen.

380 pages. Illustrations are printed on one side and suitable for coloring.
