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 ensures the LGBTQ movement can never be erased. These stories remind us to resist all forms of oppression with ferocity, community, and, most importantly, pride."--Page 2 of cover."@en ;
