Resistance - The LGBT Fight Against Fascism in World War II

Author(s): Avery Cassell (Editor, Illustrator); Diane Kanzler (Editor, Illustrator)

History

Resistance: The LGBT Fight Against Fascism in WWII is a 2019 Lambda Literary Award Finalist 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. This important book is a collection of fully-illustrated historical biographies of 41 LGBT freedom fighters with illustrations by 21 contemporary LGBTQ+ activists. Written by Avery Cassell, edited by Diane Kanzler, Foreword by Laura Antoniou.
