“A biography LGBTQ rights activists and allies can proudly share with children…a hope-filled ode to the rainbow flag.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“Pride: The Story of Harvey Milk and The Rainbow Flag beautifully tells the history of both Uncle Harvey’s dream and his collaboration with Gilbert Baker to create a global symbol of equality and inclusion. This book tells a history that all children will cherish, and will inspire the next generation of hope givers, our world’s youth”
- Stuart Milk, Founder and President of the Harvey Milk Foundation
