Pride: The Story of the LGBTQ Equality Movement

by Matthew Todd - £20.00  Welbeck Publishing Group (2021)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781787396869 | ISBN 10: 178739686x

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 organization 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.
 
Pride documents the milestones in the fight for LGBTQ equality, from the victories of early activists to the passing of legislation barring discrimination, and the gradual acceptance of the LGBTQ community in politics, sport, culture and the media.
 
Rare images and documents cover the seminal moments, events and breakthroughs of the movement, while personal testimonies share the voices of key figures on a broad range of topics.
 
Pride is a unique celebration of LGBTQ culture, an account of the ongoing challenges facing the community, and a testament to the equal rights that have been won for many as a result of the passion and determination of this mass movement.
 
A fully updated edition of Matthew Todd's essential 2019 book, Pride is a celebration and a clarion call.
