I'm also happy to share that there's a Von Steuben moment in my own YA novel, "Queer as a Five-Dollar Bill," and I'm thrilled that the true story of this Gay Revolutionary War General is also being told by Josh and Levi, and getting out in the world!

Knowing our LGBTQ history is empowering, for us all.
