A keepsake that honors more than fifty LGBTQ pioneers, activists, and revolutionaries and tells their stories of dedication and triumph through never-before-published original interviews.

The Book of Pride pays tribute to dozens of extraordinary and influential leaders who sparked the worldwide LGBTQ-rights movement. These courageous civil rights pioneers-nurses in Texas and chemists in Philadelphia; Muslims and Catholics; the loud and fearless marching in streets and the quiet and determined persevering in the face of persecution-are captured in gorgeous interviews accompanied by beautiful photographs. Mason Funk shines a spotlight on these individuals on the front lines of the fight for equality and acceptance and their stunning achievements in the 1960s and beyond.

Meet Evan Wolfson, the architect of the national marriage equality movement. And Charles Silverstein, a critical player in getting the American Psychiatric Association to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness in 1973. These are just two of the remarkable figures in The Book of Pride. In sharing these stories, this important volume not only reflects on the past, it inspires young leaders and citizens today to practice tolerance, celebrate diversity, and work for positive change in their communities. A record of the remarkable history of the LGBTQ movement, it reminds us of the necessity to fight, to resist, and to counter the forces of oppression with ferocity, community, and, most importantly, pride.
