Resistance: The LGBT Fight Against Fascism in WWII is a collection of biographies and coloring images of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender resistance members who fought for freedom during the era preceding WWII and during the war itself. Over 35 forebearers are featured in this book; members of the Resistance, bar owners, musicians, a fashion designer, a school teacher, journalists, students—all found ways of surviving as they battled fascism as it spread like a virus across Europe. The people depicted here prove that resistance can take many shapes, from forging identity documents, to writing anti-fascist poetry, to providing shelter to refugees, to flummoxing Nazis with anti-fascist leaflets. Written by Avery Cassell and illustrated by a community of LGBTQ artists, this book is both timely and inspiring.
