The Little Book of Pride The History, the People, the Parades

by Lewis Laney

The Little Book of Pride The History, the People, the Parades Synopsis

Celebrate the LGTBQ community with this small but perfectly formed guide to Pride. What began as a protest for gay rights following the Stonewall riots of 1969 in New York has grown to become a global celebration of LGBTQ culture. In the 50-odd years since the original protest, and what is now widely accepted to be the first Pride march - Christopher Street Liberation Day, 1970 - Pride events are now attended by millions each year, celebrating how far we've come, recognising where we have to go and highlighting important causes in the queer community. The Little Book of Pride is a concise look at everything you need to know about Pride, revealing the history, the key people involved, the best Pride events around the world, inspirational quotes from famous queers, Pride facts and a fun Pride survival guide.
