                    April 30th 2013
                    ISBN8857215296 (ISBN13: 9788857215297)

                    The first comprehensive photo documentation of the gay pride movement in New York City from the Stonewall uprising to                     the present day. The Stonewall riots that occurred in New York City in 1969 are frequently cited as the first instance in                         American history when people in the homosexual community fought back against a system that persecuted sexual                               minorities. 


Pride and Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons and Everyday Heroes
                    May 16th 2017
                    ISBN1633535509 (ISBN13: 9781633535503)

                    This book fills the gap for 20 million queer Americans where 90% of the current queer nonfiction titles are predominantly                     by and about white, educated, upper middle class LGBTQ artists and icons, mostly gay men. Global figures, diverse                             representatives, Lesbians, disabled, gender fluid, working class artists, icons and, especially, everyday heroes are left                         out of the portrait. Most collections highlight research and feature dead heroes. Only Tony Kushner s Angels in America:                     A Gay Fantasia on National Themes crossed over into bestseller status, cutting across race, class and sexual orientation                     in its readership.

LGBT PRIDE: A History of Fighting Prejudice Against Homosexuality
                    October 12th 2017

                    Amongst the emerging hippy culture and in the wake of the assassination of John F Kennedy, members of the LGBT                           community began to feel the need to collect together to protest about the discrimination they were experiencing. As with                       so many large institutions, things started small. Just a handful of protestors turned up for those early gatherings. But                             from small seeds, giant trees grow. Today LGBT Pride is a worldwide institution, attracting people not just from its own                         community. It is both diverse and collective, a loose conglomeration of individual groups coming each putting on their                           own events under one heading.

                    Thus began one woman's extraordinary, silence-breaking journey: Catherine Tuerk set out to educate herself and others                     about gay people. She became a leader in PFLAG--Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. She wrote                           articles for varied publications and appeared on many television and radio shows with the aim of dispelling homophobia                       and promoting pride-inspired advocacy. On frequent vacation trips abroad, Catherine and her husband served as pro-                          gay ambassadors, getting to know gay people and their parents in other cultures.

                    This triumphant memoir chronicles the author's teenage suicide attempt and the real beginning of the Gay Liberation                           movement, pre-Stonewall, in 1969 San Francisco, where Mr. Whittington was fired for being gay. It's creative non-fiction,                     written like a novel, with a conservative alter-ego's thoughts inserted to keep it lively. His groundbreaking openly gay                           philosophy-coming out enmasse as a way to enlighten and change the world-leads his comrades to crown him "Gale the                     Liberator."

                    On June 28, 1970, two thousand gay and lesbian activists in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago paraded down the                           streets of their cities in a new kind of social protest, one marked by celebration, fun, and unashamed declaration of a                           stigmatized identity. Forty-five years later, over six million people annually participate in 115 Pride parades across the                           United States. They march with church congregations and college gay-straight alliance groups, perform dance routines                       and marching band numbers, and gather with friends to cheer from the sidelines.

PRIDE: Fifty Years of Parades and Protests from the Photo Archives of the New York Times
                    May 21st 2019
                    ISBN1419737929 (ISBN13: 9781419737923)

                    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. Here, collected for the first time by The New York Times, is a powerful visual history of                     five decades of parades and protests of the LGBTQ rights movement. These photos, paired with descriptions of major                         events from each decade as well as selected reporting from The Times, showcase the victories, setbacks, and ongoing                       struggles for the LGBTQ community.

Into the Light: Photographs of the NYC Gay Pride Day from the 70s Till Today
                    March 10th 2018
                    ISBN3959852754 (ISBN13: 9783959852753)

                    Into the Light" is the title of Stanley Stellar's magnus opum: a history of the New York Pride Parade from the 1970s until                       today. The Brooklyn-born photographer (who belongs to the same generation as Robert Mapplethorpe) is a chronicler of                     the city that never sleeps, and so it seems his camera neither rested a single moment. As art collector and museum                             founder Charles Leslie put it, Stellar is a living witness to the urban drama which spanned the years from 1969 to the                           present and his imagery reconfirms the centrality, in spite of everything, of eternal male beauty.

As a direct outcome of Stonewall, gay pride marches were                           held in 1970 in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York.
