When someone is deeply inspired, nothing can stop them from succeeding in life. Kathleen Archambeau will discuss her new creation Pride & Joy, a book of pure inspiration, filled with stories of queer heroes who overcame, persisted and lived life both out and joyously out loud, completely on their own terms. These icons and real people role models broke boundaries, broke some rules and paved the way for every generation to come. Their message? Be true to yourself, above all. Express, create, write, dance, parent, sing, tech, rise up, preach, teach and shine your light for all to see.

Diverse and global. Famous and unsung. From the brilliant Emma Donaghue, author of the #1 New York Times Bestselling Room and Tony Kushner, who won both a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award for his stunning Angels in America to little-known activists in Uganda, Hungary, New Zealand and elsewhere for whom each day is an act of remarkable courage. There is a story here for everyone in the LGBT community who has ever questioned their sexual orientation or gender identity, or discovered it. 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.

“Pride and Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons and Everyday Heroes…spotlights queer luminaries living open, fulfilling, happy and successful lives—a departure from many LGBTQ portrayals.”
- Marilyn R. Atlas, Award-Winning Co-Producer, Real Women Have Curves (HBO)

“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.”
-Betty Sullivan, PhD, Publisher, San Francisco Bay Times

“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.”
- Mark Leno, First Openly Gay Man Elected to the California State Senate
