9781633535503: Pride & Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons and Everyday Heroes

Stories of success, happiness and hope from the LGBT community

Stories that comprise the best of LGBT historyPride and Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons and Everyday Heroes tells 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 LGBT community who has ever questioned their sexual orientation or gender identity, or discovered it.

Discover LGBT community stories that will stir you and reveal:

· why Tony Kushner quit cello and how Colm Toibin found his voice.
· why Emma Donoghue calls her experience a fluke and the best advice Bill T. Jones got was from his mother.
· how being an inaugural poet changed Richard Blanco’s life and how Ugandan activist “LongJones” escaped death threats and gained asylum.

Award-winning writer and longtime LGBTQ activist Kathleen Archambeau tells the untold stories from diverse LGBT community voices around the corner or around the world. Not like the depressing, sinister, shadowy stories of the past, this book highlights queer people living open, happy, fulfilling and successful lives.

Be inspired by LGBT community stories that celebrate the human spirit:

· Be emboldened by the bravery of a Uruguayan author who was rejected by her immediate family even as she began a family of her own.
· Be inspired by the audacity to fight for justice that motivates National Center for Lesbian Rights Executive Director Kate Kendell, a Mormon who grew up in Utah.
· Learn how two couples transcend time and distance to finally be together and how one NBA sports executive summoned the courage to come out.
· Discover the message of love from the first openly lesbian United Methodist Church Bishop.
· Learn the secrets of successful OUT IBM executive based in London and the rewards of Ballroom Basix founder in Harlem.
· See how the Maori philosophy of whānau guided the MP who won marriage rights in New Zealand and how high expectations overcame disability and bullying for an acclaimed mezzo-soprano.
· Know how the Armenian Genocide and family tensions impacted a professional violinist and composer.

Pride & Joy is a window into the LGBTQ community for straight friends, allies, parents and families of this finally emerging marginalized group. There’s hope that, in the words of Dan Savage, “It Gets Better” for:

· the transgender choreographer and dancer who continues to break rules and enlighten audiences to the Dutch singer, songwriter and independent theater producer who breaks down stereotypes.
· the Russian émigré award-winning computer scientist to the Chinese folk dancer.
· the founder of an award-winning smoking cessation program to the California Political Director of the Obama re-election campaign.
· and, for Entrepreneurs and gay dads, ballroom dancers and Hungarian activists on neo-Nazi “hit lists.”

From the Author:

“As a producer and literary rep, I have long been committed to inclusion and diversity regarding gender, race, and sexual orientation. My co-authored book, Dating Your Character, focuses on helping writers create multi-dimensional, non-stereotypical characters as Kathleen has shown in real-life stories in this extraordinary book. I’m delighted to endorse Pride and Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons and Everyday Heroes, as it spotlights queer luminaries living open, fulfilling, happy and successful lives―a departure from many LGBTQ portrayals.”

“Kathleen Archambeau wrote a regular column of inspiring profiles for one of the longest-running and largest LGBTQ newspapers in the country, the San Francisco Bay Times. We’re proud to have been her first public forum. Her book, Pride and Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons and Everyday Heroes, tells the in-depth stories of 30 global queer icons and is sure to embolden the next generation and give hope to those still struggling with their sexual and gender identity.”

“Pride and Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons and Everyday Heroes not only highlights the contributions of LGBT citizens to world culture, but shows young queer students that being openly gay can bring you happiness, fulfillment and success. The impact it will have on our next generation, as well as on all those who care about social justice, will be significant.”

The show spotlights three prominent gay activists―Roma Guy, a women’s and LGBT rights activist and one of the co-founders of the Women’s Building and La Casa de las Madres; Ken Jones, an African American Vietnam Veteran and LGBT activist and Cleve Jones, the originator of The Names Project, the AIDS Memorial Quilt. Variety has praised the show, saying it “champions intersectionality...the arc of history is a case study in how movements towards justice that cut out or silence a marginalized minority are doomed to fail...it is a bottled teachable moment for queer history...” (Sonia Saraiya, Variety, Feb. 20, 2017) A social activist for LGBTQ rights, Dustin Lance Black founded the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) which successfully led the federal case for marriage equality in California, putting an end to California’s discriminatory Proposition 8.
