Pride and Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons and Everyday Heroes by Kathleen Archembeau
Pride and Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons, and Everyday Heroes tell the stories of queer citizens of the world living OUT and proud, happy, fulfilling, successful lives. Diverse and global. Famous and unsung. There is a story here for everyone in the LGBTQ community who has ever questioned their sexual orientation or gender identity or discovered it.
"This book, Pride and Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons and Everyday Heroes, by longtime LGBTQ activist Kathleen Archambeau, empowers queer youth to do more than survive, but to thrive, whatever their challenges may be, whatever their losses, whatever their risks, wherever they find themselves. It encourages LGBTQ citizens to live open, happy, fulfilling, strong, and successful lives. It utilizes the power of true stories to demonstrate that a brighter, freer future is possible even in what feels like impossible circumstances. The stories told in this book are not simply reflections. Combined and shared, they have the power to help us recognize and fortify our tremendous strength."
