These pivotal events were championed by such tireless crusaders as Harvey Milk, attorneys Roberta Kaplan and Mary Bonauto, and political activist Andrew Sullivan, all of whom the author references respectfully. Frank’s strikingly detailed, essential reportage reminds readers of the gay community’s enduring fight for equality.

Synopsis

Some of the most divisive contests shaping the quest for marriage equality occurred not on the culture-war front lines but within the ranks of LGBTQ advocates. Nathaniel Frank tells the dramatic story of how an idea that once seemed unfathomable—and for many gays and lesbians undesirable—became a legal and moral right in just half a century.
