The Book of Pride (Harper One)
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 richly detailed 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.
Mason Funk is the Founder and Executive Director of Outwords, an award-winning nonprofit that records and documents the remarkable history of LGBTQ people all over the United States. The author’s proceeds from sales of The Book of Pride will go to this important nonprofit organization.
