Serving Pride is a book designed to help you grow your knowledge of queer history in the United States while sharing with your own community. Geeks Out has put together a collection of historical elements with party planning to create a Queer History Dinner Party Guide. No matter what month come together with your friends and family and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.
Whether you plan to host or just want to know more about LGBTQ+ history in the United States, Serving Pride presents history in a way that makes it easily accessible. Divided into courses there are elements of history that are shared in connection to food and drink, with interactive elements for guests. Split into seven courses, the first involving drinks and the final focusing on dessert, this history begins at the roots of United States history, prior to colonization, and moves into the present and the gains made by the LGBTQ+ community.
Each course involves someone reading a passage out loud to establish the focus of that part of the meal. As an interactive meal other guests are asked to help create or share portions of the meal. There are also moments allowing for reflection and introspection. The book itself is beautifully compiled and showcases the strength and power that exist within our community. So many have fought and given themselves fully to advancing and supporting those within the community. Even if you don’t personally host a dinner party this book will show the many hidden bits of history that we are not taught about the LGBTQ+ people in the United States.
