Abstract:

Remember when gay marriage was the easiest way to inflame an otherwise mild electorate' This volume demonstrates, through speeches, interviews, and commentary, the encouraging story of American acceptance of gay marriage and the roles that politicians'gay and straight'have played in that history. This movement, like all civil rights movements, began with individuals telling the truth about who they are to a world that doesn't accept them. It ends with an entire generation of young people who reject blatant civil rights discrimination. From Supervisor Harvey Milk articulating in 1978 why gay people in all fields must be out and visible ('For invisible, we remain in limbo'a myth, a person with no parents, no brothers, no sisters, no friends who are straight, no important positions in employment'); to Governor Andrew Cuomo blinking back tears as he discusses his pride in making gay marriage a reality in New York in 2011; to President Obama's unprecedented support; and the courage of many other American politicians'We Do! triumphantly chronicles this recent chapter of our history.
