The Gay Revolution

Supreme Court lawyer Linda Hirshman tells the story of the gay rights movement, detailing how a dedicated and resourceful minority changed America. Her book Victory: The Triumphant Gay Revolution recounts the long roads that led to recent victories—from the start of modern struggle for gay rights at Stonewall in 1969 to states legalizing gay marriage, the armed services stopped enforcing Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and the recent ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act.
