    A Queer History of the United States by Michael Bronski (elvisettey)
    elvisettey: This book encompasses more than just the 20th century but is also more inclusive in terms of the LGBT community. It's less legalistic and more of a good history, but you can still see how far the gay community has come. It's a superior book to Hirshman's.… (more)

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061965502, Hardcover)

Supreme Court lawyer and political pundit Linda Hirshman details the stunning story of how a resourceful and dedicated minority transformed the notion of American marriage equality and forged a campaign for cultural change that will serve as a model for all future political movements. In the vein of Taylor Branch’s classic Parting of the Waters, Hirshman’s groundbreaking Victory: The Triumphant Gay Revolution is the powerful story of a massive shift in American culture. Hirshman offers an insider’s view of the crucial struggle that is leading to change, incorporating her unique experiences and insights and drawing upon new interviews—with movement titans such as Frank Kameny and Phyllis Lyon, with next-generation activists such as Evan Wolfson of Freedom to Marry, and with allies including the likes of New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand—to create a comprehensive, inspiring history of change in our time.
