Description

Loud and Proud is an inspirational collection of speeches from the LGBTQ+ community and its allies that have changed our world, and the conversation.

“Openness may not completely disarm prejudice, but it’s a good place to start.”  —Jason Collins, first openly gay athlete in US pro sports

A sister volume to So Here I Am: Speeches by Great Women to Empower and Inspire, this seminal collection places the loud and proud voices of the vibrant LGBTQ+ community center stage. From equal marriage to gender definitions, bullying to parenthood, the issues covered in these speeches touch on all aspects of LGBTQ+ and reflect the diverse and multi-faceted nature of this community.

Experienced public speaker and Creative Director for Google's Creative Lab Sydney Tea Uglow introduces each speech with a concise bio of the remarkable person who delivered it. Paired with powerful illustrations, the unique personality of each speaker is brought to life. A ribbon keeps your place in the book.

We are stronger when we stand together, and this collection encourages us to do just that and to celebrate the beauty of all our rainbow hues.  

The voices: Karl Heinrich Ulrichs; Robert G. Ingersoll; Theodora Ana Sprungli; Bayard Rustin; Franklin "Frank" Kameny; James Baldwin; Marsha P. Johnson; Sally Gearhart; Harvey Milk; Harry Hay; Vito Russo; Mary Fisher; Tammy Baldwin; Paul Martin; Wanda Sykes; Sally Ride; Lady Gaga; Lana Wachowski; Jason Collins; Laverne Cox; Debi Jackson; Lee Mokobe; Janet Mock.
