A fantastic completion of the stories of ordinary and extraordinary activists that transformed our society. Wonderfully composed into brief chapters and sections that draw you into the period and move you along into the next step of the revolution. ( )

An essential book about the movement to include gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people in U.S. society from the 1950s to the present.

Lillian Faderman has long been a leading figure researching and writing about lesbian history. In the early 1980s, she began publishing books that introduced us all to lesbians from the past giving a historical validation to the lesbians who were suddenly speaking out around us.

Now, in The Gay Revolution, she tells a comprehensive story of the movement for lesbians, gay men and other sexual outsiders to be fully accepted in U.S. society.
