Pride, the story of the LGBTQ equality movement
Publication year: 2019
Media class: Hardback
Publisher: Andre Deutsch
In June 1969, police raided New York gay bar the Stonewall Inn. 'Pride' charts the events of that night, the days and nights of rioting that followed, the ensuing organisation of local members of the community - and the 50 years since in which activists and ordinary people have dedicated their lives to reversing the global position. It documents the milestones in the fight for equality between genders and sexualities, from the victories of early activists, to the gradual acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community in politics, sport and the media and the passing of legislation barring discrimination.
