Stevenson uses the theme of Pride Parades to tell the history of the gay-rights movement around the world. She begins with a history of gay rights, discusses family support for gay-rights issues, the community that organizes the Pride events, coming-out stories of young people, and international Pride events. This timely book is full of history, current events, and photographs. There are many sidebars with short stories and facts.  Pride is an engaging, informative, and easy-to-read book that would be a great addition to middle- and high-school collections.

Summary: Pride is a colorful and straightforward history of the LGBTQ movement.
