JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD SELECTION • Celebrate Pride and it’s iconic rainbow flag—a symbol of inclusion and acceptance around the world—with the very first picture book to tell its remarkable and inspiring history!

“Pride is a beacon of (technicolor) light.” —Entertainment Weekly


In this deeply moving and empowering true story, young readers will trace the life of the Gay Pride Flag, from its beginnings in 1978 with social activist Harvey Milk and designer Gilbert Baker to its spanning of the globe and its role in today’s world. Award-winning author Rob Sanders’s stirring text, and acclaimed illustrator Steven Salerno’s evocative images, combine to tell this remarkable - and undertold - story. A story of love, hope, equality, and pride.
