Pride, Not Prejudice
From Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected official in California, to the legalization of same-sex marriage nationwide, the history of the gay rights is rich with stories and significant strides. Through a collection of New York Times articles from 1962 to present day, this coffee table book celebrates those who dared to stand for equal rights. The cover features an image from New York City's 2016 Gay Pride Parade, the first after the Supreme Court's historical marriage decision. From the outside the courtroom that day, the Times reported hearing three words chanted by hundreds: "Love has won." Introduction written by former Times reporter David Dunlap, who specialized in covering gay life. Made in Williston, Vermont.
