January LaVoy narrates Blair Imani's compilation of the life and times of a diverse collection of women and nonbinary leaders who identify as LGBTQ, racially and religiously diverse, handicapped, and disadvantaged. LaVoy's steady narration is minimally emotional, perfect for the short sketches of these 60 leaders of progressive social change. LaVoy voices the few direct quotes in a warm, inviting way, and definitions of the terminology that pertain to LGBTQ persons enlighten listeners to the diverse new vocabulary that describes identity. Imani's selection of subjects breaks down stereotypes and established definitions of gender. Each biographical sketch highlights the accomplishments of famous, infamous, and little known persons from the last half of the twentieth and into the twenty-first century.
