Author Sarah Prager made a splash with her first book, “Queer, There, and Everywhere: 23 People Who Changed The World.” Aimed at teens and young readers, her debut — which chronicles influential LGBTQ+ persons throughout history — became a critics’ darling and favorite of readers and library associations. Her next book, “Rainbow Revolutionaries: 50 LGBTQ People Who Made History” continues the story of LGBTQ history-makers and was released by HarperCollins on May 26. Not only a queer history writer, she is also the creator of Quist, a free mobile app that offers content relating to LGBTQ+ and HIV/AIDS history. “It’s hard to imagine something more rewarding than helping to open the minds of young people, both queer and non-queer, to the rich and diverse heritage of our community,” she tells GO. “Youth are often brimming with excitement to find role models they connect with from history, and it can completely change their life path once they discover what’s possible for them.” She’s a frequent speaker on queer history to audiences across the globe and has presented at Harvard Business School, Twitter Headquarters in San Francisco, and the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City — among other venues. As a writer and advocate for queer history, being out is a necessary part of Pager’s career. “I’ve created a job for myself where being out is almost required, and I know I’m very privileged to have that,” she says. “Discovering my own identify and how that fits into a community of queer ancestors is what led me to this career, and being out in my career goes hand in hand with that.” —RK
