about this item

This book describes the raid on a gay bar in New York City in 1969 and the subsequent protests that occurred as a key turning point in the LGBT civil rights movement in the US. It describes the homophobia and legalized discrimination against LGBT people that existed before the riots; the raid on the Stonewall Inn, the protests, and their role in the debate about LGBT rights; milestones in the effort for equal rights, from the AIDS crisis to the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, as well as the perspectives of those who opposed the movement; and the legacy of the Stonewall Riots. It also includes biographies of Marsha P. Johnson, Frank Kameny, Dick Leitsch, Seymour Pine, Sylvia Rivera, Craig Rodwell, Martha Shelley, and Howard Smith, and primary sources, such as newspaper articles, Harvey Milk's “Hope Speech,” and the Kinsey Report on homosexuality, as well as a list of research topics for students.
