Closeted until his 20s, Award-winning blogger and author Lee Wind writes books today that would have dramatically changed his life as a young Gay boy. With his Master’s Degree from Harvard, Lee commits to writing Cool Stuff For Queer Kids. His book “No Way, They Were Gay? Hidden Lives and Secret Loves” explores the hidden (and often surprising) Queer lives and loves of two dozen historical figures, including William Shakespeare, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. “I give young people access to a hidden history that can be life-changing. History has been sanitized for the protection of those in power, leaving out the stories of women, people of colour, indigenous people, disabled people, and – my focus – men who loved men, women who loved women, people who loved without regard to gender, and people who lived outside gender boundaries.” Giving young people access to this hidden history is life-changing. Seeing people like you in the past changes how you see your place at the table now. And that changes what you can imagine for the future.”
