Celebrating Diversity & Community
by Robin Stevenson
Publisher: Orca Book Publishers
For LGBTQ people and their supporters, Pride events are an opportunity to honour the past, protest injustice, and celebrate a diverse and vibrant community. The high point of Pride, the Pride Parade, is spectacular and colourful. But there is a whole lot more to Pride than rainbow flags and amazing outfits. How did Pride come to be? And what does Pride mean to the people who celebrate it?
