Groundbreaking book for youth focuses on LGBTQ history and Pride celebrations

Pride: Celebrating Diversity & Community, by Robin Stevenson, a groundbreaking nonfiction book written expressly for young readers explores the history and importance of the Pride Day celebration.

VICTORIA, April 27, 2016 /CNW/ - This beautiful book focuses on youth involvement in the Pride movement and includes personal accounts and quotes from LGBTQ youth.

"As useful and appealing as this book will be to a general audience, there will be another group of readers seeking it out with more focus…These stories, sad and happy, are where vulnerable preteen kids may see themselves."
—Sarah Ellis, Quill & Quire review, March 1, 2016

Author Robin Stevenson has written numerous novels for children and teens. This is her first work of nonfiction.

"It is important to contribute to the conversation on diversity and equality," says Andrew Wooldridge, Publisher at Orca, "and to provide marginalized youth with a much-needed book that not only treats them with respect, but celebrates them."
