In the face of injustice, people band together to work for change. Through their influence, what was once unthinkable becomes common. This title traces the history of the gay rights movement in the United States, including the key players, watershed moments, and legislative battles that have driven social change. Iconic images and informative sidebars accompany compelling text that follows the movement from before the 1969 riots at the Stonewall Inn in New York City through activists' work to end prejudice and up to new legislative triumphs in the twenty-first century. Features include a glossary, selected bibliography, Web sites, source notes, and an index, plus a timeline and essential facts.
