Book Review: ‘The Little Book of Pride’ by Lewis Laney

The Little Book of Pride

Lewis Laney

This little tome is a neat pocket-sized hardback, which gives an overview of Pride. Split into four chronological parts – Before Pride, First Pride, Prise Rises and Keeping Pride Alive – with a handy appendix at the end.

Laney is careful to make sure that all communities across our LGBTQ+ QTIPoC are represented and given equal voice and credit and there is a far-reaching synopsis of both Queer history and the rites of Pride & LGBTQ+ rights across the world. With profiles of key protagonists, quotes and feel good messaging, The Little Book of PrideĀ proves that size definitely doesn’t matter by squeezing everything you need to know about Pride into 144 pages.

There is also a beautiful glittery fore-edge foil finish forming a rainbow when the book is closed, superb attention to camp detail and the book is filled with colourful, fun illustrations. Bringing a smile is what this little book is all about, and making you feel proud at what our community is capable of when it reaches for the stars.

A great gift for anyone missing Pride and its infinite, affirming variety this year.
