The Gay Revolution : The Story of the Struggle, Paperback / softback Book

The Gay Revolution : The Story of the Struggle Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The sweeping story of the struggle for gay and lesbian rights based on amazing interviews with politicians, military figures, and members of the entire LGBT community who face these challenges every day     The fight for gay and lesbian civil rights, the years of outrageous injustice, the early battles, the heart-breaking defeats and the victories beyond the dreams of the gay rights pioneers is the most important civil rights issue of the present day.

Lillian Faderman tells this unfinished story through the dramatic accounts of passionate struggles with sweep, depth and feeling.     Against the dark backdrop of the 1950s, a few brave people began to fight back, paving the way for the revolutionary changes of the 1960s and beyond.

Faderman discusses the protests in the 1960s; the counter reaction of the 1970s and early eighties; the decimated but united community during the AIDS epidemic; and the current hurdles for the right to marriage equality.     The Gay Revolution paints a nuanced portrait of the LGBT civil rights movement.

A defining account, this is the most complete and authoritative book of its kind.
