Bibliog. Includes bibliographical references (page 31) and index.
Summary The first American gay rights organization formed in 1924, but was soon pressured to disband. Another wouldn t form until the 1950s. The history of the U.S. movement to achieve progressive rights for people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, or queer is full of stops and starts and victories and tragedies, but also hope for the future. This important and timely volume describes a topic of history often glossed over and a movement that is still working to effect change. Key figures are featured as well as crucial events, both past and present.
