We Can Do Better Than This


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.
