Join us to proudly celebrate the launch of writer and Stanford alum Mason Funk’s book, “The Book of Pride: LGBTQ Heroes Who Changed the World.” Funk (’80) will give a reading and a book chat and take you behind the scenes of his book which dives into the compelling stories of the leaders and activists on the front lines of the LGBTQ movement from the ‘60s to the present. During a lively discussion, you’ll “meet” activists ranging from marriage equality pioneer Evan Wolfson to transgender icon Miss Major Griffin-Gracy to Stonewall rabblerouse Mark Segal while meeting other Stanford alums and enjoying wine and cheese in a private Hancock Park home.
 
Coming on the heels of LA Pride Week, the timing for this interesting, informative and fun event couldn’t be more perfect. Don’t miss your chance to explore a half-century of momentous social change through “The Book of Pride.” LA-based Funk is the founder of OUTWORDS, a nonprofit dedicated to collecting, preserving and sharing the stories of LGBTQ pioneers.
