In June 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City. Pride charts that historic event, the rioting that followed, the radicalization and organization of the LGBTQ+ community worldwide, and the activism that has taken place in the 50 years since. It documents the milestones in the fight for equality between genders and sexualities, from early victories, to the gradual acceptance of LGBTQ+ people, to the passing of legislation barring discrimination. Rare images, documents, interviews, and essays from notable figures—including Peter Tatchell, the Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, Asifa Lahore, Maureen Duffy, and Lady Phyll—provide a comprehensive account of the sacrifices and passion of this mass movement, the ongoing challenges facing the gay community, and the victories that have been won.
The Pride Guide
April 6th, 2018
ISBN 1538110768 (ISBN13: 9781538110768)
Sex education materials meant to explain important basics to kids are too-often not written with an empathic understanding of what those basics are. This is particularly obvious regarding books that include LGBTQ identities. Even when they do hit the mark, many have a limited scope and don't take into account the practical realities of developing sexuality. The Pride Guide is written explicitly for the almost ten percent of teenagers who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, or any of the unique identities that are not heterosexual/ cisgendered. It explores sex, dating, relationships, puberty, and both physical and online safety in one resource. The issue, today, is not whether or not queer youth will get sex education. The issue is how and where they will gather information and whether or not the information, they gather with be applicable, unreliable, or exploitative.

Pride: Photographs After Stonewall
May 7th, 2019
Fifty years ago this spring, the Stonewall uprising occurred in Greenwich Village—an event that marked the coming-out of New York’s gay community and a refusal by gays to accept underground status that was as important in its way as the Montgomery bus boycott was to the civil rights movement. As a direct outcome of Stonewall, gay pride marches were held in 1970 in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. The ultimate chronicler of New York’s downtown scene in that period, and therefore of pre-AIDS life in the gay community, was the late Fred W. McDarrah, senior staff photographer of the legendary Village Voice. In 1994, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Stonewall, A Cappella Books issued his lauded collection Gay Pride: Photographs from Stonewall to Today.
