THE BOOK OF PRIDE captures the true story of the gay rights movement from the 1960s to the present, through richly detailed, stunning interviews with the leaders, activists, and ordinary people who witnessed the movement 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 empowers young people today (both LGBTQ and straight) to discover their own courage in order to create positive change. Furthermore, it serves a critically important role in ensuring the history of the LGBTQ movement can never be erased, inspiring us to resist all forms of oppression with ferocity, community, and, most importantly, pride.… (more)

Absolutely amazing audiobook, the narrators did a fantastic job. I learned so much about the history of the LGBTQ movement that I never knew before. This was an extremely ambitious project and it paid off handsomely. I love in the intro when the author talk about why he is doing all these interviews, how he compares it to interviews of WW2 veterans. It is so important to document these elders and their stories to ensure history can never be erased or rewritten. Kudos to everyone who contributed to this. Highly recommend. ( )
