The Early History of the Gay Rights Movement

By: Greg Baldino

In the contemporary era, gay and lesbian activism is part of the intersectional LGBTQ+ community, but this wasn't always so. This book explains why the need for the fight for nonheteronormative rights emerged in the nineteenth century. It goes into how the fight itself began to pick up steam in the 1950s and '60s as small groups of radicals grew into a national movement for social justice. Activists across the LGBTQ+ spectrum confront police and government officials, join forces with labor and civil rights struggles, and help reshape the modern world.

Information is primarily organized chronologically, but detailed sidebars and captioned archival photographs break up the text, leading readers on forays into interesting, related topics. There is enough overlap between the titles to make each stand strongly on its own; as a whole, the series offers a comprehensive picture of the movement. Beyond Gender Binaries and The Early History of the Gay Rights Movement are two standouts, discussing topics that are generally glossed over in other books that explore similar subject matter. The six titles in this series work together to provide an in-depth look at the LGBTQ+ movement. Highly recommended for middle school and high school collections.
