Pride

Pride

Angel John Guerra, Michael Rowe
$24.95


As Toronto marks the fiftieth year of its first gay rights march comes this celebration of those who march with pride.

For the past fifteen years, Toronto photographer Angel Guerra has captured his city’s pride parade on a human scale. In these 120 photographs, which glimpse beyond the usual media coverage, Guerra zooms in from the glorious spectacle to the small scenes and single participants, shining a light on moments of joy, strength, ferocity, resilience and love.

In 2024, Toronto will mark the fiftieth anniversary of the first Gay Pride March in 1974, when more than one hundred people gathered to march from Allan Gardens to Queen’s Park, calling on lawmakers to include sexual orientation in the Ontario Human Rights Code. In the book’s introduction, Lambda-awarding-winning writer Michael Rowe brings this history, and the challenges the gay community has faced since, into sharp focus.

At a time when 2SLGBTQI+ rights are under renewed threat throughout the world, Guerra and Rowe’s work captures the power of a movement that contains multitudes.
