Summary

Celebrate with the gorgeous coffee table book PRIDE, a powerful visual history of five decades of parades and protests of the LGBTQ+ rights movement.

“To take in the breadth of [PRIDE’s] contentsto see the scope of LGBTQ+ rights, from the first Christopher Street Day march in 1970 to protests for transgender rightsis to witness the power of visibility firsthand.” —Them

It began in New York City on June 28, 1969.

When police raided the Stonewall Inn—a bar in the Greenwich Village neighborhood, known as a safe haven for gay men—violent demonstrations and protests broke out in response. The Stonewall Riots, as they would come to be known, were the first spark in the wildfire that would become the LGBTQ+ rights revolution.

Fifty years later, the LGBTQ+ community and its supporters continue to gather every June to commemorate this historic event.

These photos, paired with descriptions of major events from each decade as well as selected reporting from the New York Times, showcase the victories, setbacks, and ongoing struggles for the LGBTQ +community.

Introduction by Adam Nagourney

Author Biography

Alex Ross studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, then honed his craft as a storyboard artist before entering the field of comics. In 1993, Marvels—his groundbreaking miniseries with writer Kurt Busiek—created a wider acceptance for painted comics. In 1996 he and writer Mark Waid produced the equally successful Kingdom Come for DC Comics, and followed those up with an extensive series of work including magazine and album covers, as well as a poster for the Academy Awards. Ross has also been the subject of two monographs written and designed by Chip Kidd—Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross and Marvelocity: The Marvel Comics Art of Alex Ross. His latest book is The Alex Ross Marvel Comics Poster Book (Abrams ComicArts, Spring 2021).
