Abstract:

"From one of the nation's best-known and most widely-respected LGBT leaders comes an impassioned and informed argument for gay equality to move beyond the limiting confines of the equality movement. The LGBT movement is one of the most active, contested and engaging social movements in the US. This optimistic book challenges advocates for LGBT rights to aspire beyond the narrow framework of equality to a more expansive and inclusive politics. The book's essays examine the dilemmas of compromise, assimilation, and ideology that face advocates for LGBT rights through accessible, provocative, and personal perspectives derived from the author's experience as a leader in this movement. Intended for a broad and general audience, the book turns a thoughtful lens into the controversies, rhetoric, and strategic questions that face this social revolution still in progress."--Publisher's website.
