We Can Do Better Than This: 40 Voices on the Future of LGBTQ+ Rights (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


We talk about LGBTQ+ equality. But what does it actually mean? And how do we get there?

In this powerful and thought-provoking essay collection, 35 people - from actors, pop stars and athletes to scientists, writers and activists - set out to answer these vital questions.

We Can Do Better Than This meets the famous drag queen who wants to eradicate the stigma around dating trans people, a gay Bangladeshi activist calling for the decriminalisation of homosexuality after his best friends were murdered in a hate crime, the Russian lesbian sex blogger skirting around the law to educate young people, a well-known trans author and journalist who wants to reimagine trans media representation, and the supermodel calling for the end of intersex surgeries on children.

Featuring deeply moving personal stories and provocative new arguments, this is a book about how we can make our world better, and why LGBTQ+ equality should matter to everyone.

Amelia Abraham (Edited by) Amelia Abraham (b. 1991) is a journalist and author from London. She has worked as a commissioning editor at VICE and Refinery29, and is currently Features Editor at Dazed. She writes for the Guardian, Observer, Independent, Sunday Times, New Statesman, ES Magazine, i-D Magazine and Vogue. She is currently working on a script for television. Her main interest is LGBTQ+ culture and politics, and her first book, Queer Intentions: A (Personal) Journey Through LGBTQ+ Culture was released with Picador in May 2019. Taking the reader on a thought-provoking and entertaining journey, Amelia explores the mainstreaming of queer culture across the West, from the first same-sex marriage in Britain, the world's biggest drag convention in LA, Pride parades across Europe, a transgender model agency, and Turkey's underground LGBTQ+ scene, to a genderless, polyamorous commune in Stockholm. Owen Jones said: 'this book will resonate with a new generation of queer people and all those who seek to be their allies - a brilliant book'. Naomi Wolf wrote: 'A voice that is profound, vulnerable and hilarious in turn.'
