Reading Level: 4-5
Interest Level: 4-6
The 1960s were a time when many marginalized groups grew tired of the treatment they had suffered for decades and started to fight back. The LGBTQ+ community was no exception. The Stonewall Riots were the catalyst for the modern-day pride movement. Although pride flags and parades are commonplace now, getting to this point required the bravery, strength, and determination of hundreds of thousands of LGBTQ+ people. This volume, supplemented by in-depth sidebars and historical black-and-white photographs, explores how far the LGBTQ+ rights movement has come—and what hurdles remain to be overcome in the future.
