Outstanding LGBTQ Youths of 2021
QueerBio.Com is pleased to present its annual list of Outstanding LGBTQ Youths for the year. The biographies of these individuals were added to the biographical website during 2021 when their actions and achievements came to the attention of the editors.
As a result of the Olympic Games being held in 2021, a large portion of these youths are involved in sports. These include gold, silver, and bronze medalists. Others represent a generation that is comfortable with their personal sexual identity. All have used their skills, profile and success to serve as role models to help others live their lives openly. They come from the worlds of activism, sports, politics, fashion and entertainment.
In each case, the individual has broken discriminatory barriers and proudly declared their personal sexual identity.
Each has made a material impact in their field of interest, and several have become tops in their field.
