‘Pride’ Review: Sweeping History Made Personal

Assumptions will be made in advance about “Pride,” the ambitious six-part documentary about the history of

LGBTQ+ civil rights in America. And some will be correct. Is it celebratory? Yes. Is it self-congratulatory? To a degree. Is it a sweeping, encyclopedic, overly ambitious, Ken Burns-ian attempt to be the last word on the subject? On the contrary.

Despite the breadth of the subject and the decades-long arc of the project—from “1950s: People Had Parties” through “2000s: Y2Gay”—the governing impulse in the series is for intimacy, a telling of smaller personal stories that illuminate the large themes. The anecdotal aside (or
