Summary: "Captures the true story of the LGBTQ civil rights movement from the 1960s to the present through richly detailed, stunning interviews with the leaders, activists, and ordinary people who witnessed the revolution and made it happen. These individuals fought battles, both personal and political, often without the support of family or friends, frequently under the threat of violence and persecution. By shining a light on these remarkable stories of bravery and determination, The Book of Pride not only honors an important chapter in American history, but also ensures the LGBTQ movement can never be erased. These stories remind us to resist all forms of oppression with ferocity, community, and, most importantly, pride."--Page 2 of cover.
