Great LGBTQ+ Speeches from Tea Uglow and illustrated by Jack Holland is a very nice collection of speeches that span both history and objectives.

These are excerpts (of course, most speeches are fairly long and by necessity meander a bit) that highlight some of the most powerful statements of LGBTQ+ rights, and by extension human rights. Each speech is preceded by a brief introduction of both the person and the historical context of the speech.

While I tend to be one of those readers who turn most books into multimedia affairs, Uglow suggests looking up some of these that are available to either watch, listen to, or read in their entirety. I would absolutely second that suggestion. There are a couple that I am still looking to find the full text of, and I will succeed, I just may have to dig a little deeper.

Though I am interested in reading a few of these as complete texts, the excerpts have been chosen very well. There are powerful moments. Some may make you a little sad before getting fired up. Some may make you start looking for how to make a difference right now. Some may even make you see the person and/or the time period a little differently. Hopefully they all generate a desire to find ways to begin or extend one's activism. Times may be changing but change isn't always unidirectional, so we have to keep pushing it the way we want.
