Summary

Follows the history of the LGBTQ+ movement and it's achievements in campaigning for equal rights for the LGBTQ+ community.

From Prejudice to Pride looks at the rise and achievements of the LGBTQ+ movement and the different communities, pioneers and stories of heartbreak and courage that have marched alongside it.

This book will inspire courage and pride in young LGBTQ+ people and help answer questions for all readers interested in gender and identity.

Follow LGBTQ+ history from ancient civilisations to the present-day, and learn about key events including the trial of Oscar Wilde, the Stonewall riots, the AIDS crisis, same-sex marriage and changing laws that have impacted on LGBTQ+ life.

Gain insight into the shifting attitudes that have challenged lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and the experiences that help us understand what it means to be LGBTQ+ today.

Filled with photographs documenting LGBTQ+ life from the past and present, and from around the world.
