Abstract:

Drawing on archival material and in-depth interviews, the author, a Supreme Court lawyer and political pundit chronicles the gay rights movement, revealing how the fight for gay rights has changed the American landscape for all citizens, blurring rigid gender lines and redefining the definition of family. She details the 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 book, Parting of the Waters, this book is the story of a massive shift in American culture. It offers an insider's view of the crucial struggle that is leading to change, incorporating her 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.
