Description - The New York Times Twentieth Century in Review by Vincent J. Samar
Among the many civil rights developments that shaped the social and political landscape of the 20th century, the gay rights movement has been unique in its origins, its goals, and its impact. For much of the century, gays and lesbians were not even recognized as a distinct cultural group, so that when they finally became galvanized following the Stonewall riot of the late 1960s, their struggle became a quest for individual and collective identity as much as one for civil rights. Through a compilation of news stories, editorials, essays, and reviews taken from The New York Times , The Gay Rights Movement reveals much about the journey of homosexuals from isolated, criminalized pariahs to members of a distinct and outspoken community. This unique reference book includes more than 500 articles and 100 illustrations that chronicle the legal, political, social, cultural, and personal evolution of gay rights throughout the 20th century and up to the present time.
