Excerpts from the article:
· · Though Pride won’t hit shelves until spring 2018, it’s already been praised by Harvey Milk Foundation President Stuart Milk, who is Harvey’s nephew. The book, he said, “will inspire the next generation of hope givers, who are our world’s youth.”
· · Echoing those sentiments was Trevor Project CEO and Executive Director Amit Paley, who told HuffPost he was “thrilled that more young people will learn the story behind the original rainbow flag.”
· Author Rob Sanders told HuffPost he got the idea for the book on June 26, 2015, the day the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide. “It seemed like the country ― even the world ― was washed in the colors of the rainbow” that night, he said.
