Matthew Todd - Pride

Thursday 11th July 2019
19:00 - 20:00 at Waterstones, Bristol - Galleries

In June 1969, police raided New York gay bar The Stonewall Inn. Pride charts the events of that night, the days and nights of rioting that followed, the ensuing organisation of local members of the community - and the 50 years since in which activists and ordinary people have dedicated their lives to reversing the global position.

Pride documents the milestones in the fight for equality,from the victories of earlyactivists to the gradual acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community in politics, sports and the media, and the passing of legislation barring discrimination.


Matthew Todd, former editor of Attitude UK, will join us for this evening preceding Bristol Pride to discuss his latest book Pride.He will be joined by Jonathan Blake, former activist in the Lesbians & Gays Support the Miners group and performer in The HIV Monologues.
