The Pink Line by Mark Gevisser
Six years in the making, The Pink Line follows protagonists from nine countries all over the globe to tell the story of how LGBTQ+ Rights became one of the world’s new human rights frontiers in the second decade of the twenty-first century. Gevisser folds intimate and deeply affecting stories of individuals, families and communities into a definitive account of how the world has changed, so dramatically, in just a decade, and in doing so, reveals a troubling new direction: while same-sex marriage and gender transition are now celebrated in some parts of the world, laws to criminalise homosexuality and gender non-conformity have been strengthened in others. It is at once an engrossing study, and a collection of deeply personal histories.
