Rainbow Revolutions: Power, Pride and Protest in the Fight for Queer Rights
From police raids to Pride, from shadows to rainbows: a queer victory story! On June 28 1969, around one o’clock in the morning, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a bar in Greenwich Village, New York. What happened that night would be a defining moment in queer history. Want to know what happened? Read this! From the bold speeches of activists Karl Ulrichs and Audre Lorde to the birth of Pride and queer pop culture, this inspiring book is a rainbow-bright tribute to the LGBTQ+ heroes who dared to be themselves, fight back and speak up for their rights.
