Pride Inside – Interlink Publishing

Pride Inside

Pride is a time of celebration and love for our identities and our community. Though Northampton Pride and countless other Prides have been cancelled this year due to COVID-19, the community strength behind the pride movement is a flame that will never be extinguished.

We at Interlink Books wanted to create a remote celebration station for our LGBT+ community that would allow us to celebrate our identities and histories while maintaining social distance. So we created Pride Inside. In partnership with Northampton Pride, the Stonewall Center at Umass, Hampshire County PFLAG, Safe Passage, and the Sexual Minorities Archives, we have provided a medley of fun, pride-celebrating activities that support all ages of the LGBT+ community

What does Pride Inside look like?

Pride Inside is your virtual celebration station to feel proud even during isolation. Express yourself artistically with beautiful Pride-themed coloring pages, discover important identities and figures in the LGBT+ community with our word searches, puzzle out four different queer history fill-ins, challenge your friends to a LGBT+ themed Zoom trivia night, and then party the night away with colorful Pride-themed quarantinis!

Coloring sheets

The LGBT+ community includes more than just the colors of the rainbow! Explore our coloring pages for artwork of LGBT+ people of color as well as simpler designs for younger children such as a heart and rainbow.

How we are supporting the local Queer community

It is so vital for our community to have resources that honor our identities in this time when we can't be together. We hope you will enjoy Pride Inside’s free resources for this reason!

But because everyone is separated due to Covid-19, queer organizations are suffering. Interlink is also offering 20% of the proceeds from the sale of one of our latest titles, Rainbow Revolutions: Power, Pride, and Protest in the Fight for Queer Rights to each business via an affiliate link. These organizations help members of the LGBT+ community every day by showing up for them to promote their rights, their health, and their solidarity. Support them now!
