There are a lot of Pride Month reading lists out there right now — and yes, you should absolutely read Giovanni's Room if you haven't already — but we wanted to go beyond the classics, and maybe find some new classics.

So we invited author Akwaeke Emezi to tell us about a few books they love that showcase voices you might not have heard before. But first, we asked them about their new book, Dear Senthuran: A Black Spirit Memoir.

One year ago today, police arrested a Minneapolis man named George Floyd, and the world soon saw the video of Floyd dying with an officer's knee on his neck. In the days that followed, we heard a lot of American voices on the subject of policing, and we'd like to share one of the voices that stays with us, with many people. Noel King had this conversation one year ago in Minneapolis.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED NPR BROADCAST)

Forty years ago, Lawrence Mass, a young, gay doctor living in New York City, made history. It is the kind of history no one wants to make.

Mass began writing news stories about a disease that many did not want to acknowledge.

At the time, gay men were falling ill from a mystery illness that left them with severely compromised immune systems. Mass's first article about it published May 18, 1981, for the New York Native, a gay newspaper. He'd gotten a tip from a friend who worked in a city ER and saw these cases up close.
