My own son's small high school did have a GSA club. This is only four or five years ago, in a suburban area near Los Angeles. I was always happy to see the openly gay and lesbian students feeling confident about being themselves in this nurturing, supportive, protected environment. But I also knew this scenario was not the norm. It still isn't. Attitudes are changing, but hate crimes still exist. The current culture wars here in the United States are evidence that there is still so much education that needs to be done, so many little towns where kids have to hide who they are. We are still fighting over who gets to use which bathrooms! So it often seems that we take one step forward and two steps back, but things are better now than they used to be--a topic that is explored in Pride Must Be A Place. I write all of this because I think Pride is a really important book--for not only young people to better understand their LGBTQ peers, and so that LGBTQ teens can see their own stories in print--but for adults as well to understand what their kids are dealing with.
Pride Must Be A Place effectively shows the evolution that happens with education and knowledge. People do change, they do grow more accepting once they've met someone who is different. (We humans fear that which is unknown to us.) I teared up a bit a couple of times, thinking about the story from a parent's perspective regarding the teen/parent relationships in the book as Ezra deals with his father, and also in his interactions with his friends' parents.
I hope this book finds its way out into the world--its message is powerful. I hope for a time when every person can be their true version of themselves openly and freely without hiding.
