How can we create a better world for LGBTQ+ people? 35 voices share their stories and visions for the future.

In We Can Do Better Than This, 35 voices explore this question. Through stories and new arguments on safety and visibility, dating and gender, care and community, they map new global frontiers in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights.

Pabllo Vittar pleads for the end of hate murders, Olly Alexander champions inclusive sex education in schools, and Beth Ditto calls for a revolution in representation. Elsewhere, Mykki Blanco sets out a vision to end HIV stigma, Owen Jones demands improved LGBTQ+ mental health services, and Travis Alabanza imagines a world without gender policing.

Moving from the UK and USA to Russia, Bangladesh and beyond, this is a guide to understanding the issues facing LGBTQ+ people today. But it's also a call to action and an important manifesto for how - together - we can start to create a better future.
