Pride

PRIDE: Fifty Years of Parades and Protests

From the Photo Archives of The New York Times

By The New York Times | Introduction by Adam Nagourney | Chapter Introductions by David Kaufman

It began in New York City on June 28, 1969. When police raided the Stonewall Inn—a bar in Greenwich Village known as a safe haven for gay and transgender people— violent demonstrations and protests broke out in response. The Stonewall riots, as they would come to be known, are viewed as the symbol of the modern gay rights revolution. Fifty years later, the gay community and its supporters still gather every June to commemorate that historic uprising.

With more than 350 photographs collected from the archives of The New York Times, PRIDE (Abrams Image; May 21, 2019; UK £17.99; Hardcover) presents a powerful visual history of five decades of parades and protests of the movement. These photos, paired with descriptions of major events from each decade as well as selected reporting from The Times, showcase the victories, setbacks, and ongoing struggles of the LGBTQ community.

We’ve got two copies of PRIDE to give away. To be in with a chance, email your name to competitions@fyne.co.uk

Please put ‘Pride’ as the email subject.
