About The Book

News media, television, music and entertainment are filled with images of gay and lesbian people today. But how did it all begin? Explore the history of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in the United States, from the horrifying medical treatments of the early twentieth century to the 1969 Stonewall riots that sparked an international movement for equality. Then take a closer look at three of the most relevant issues facing LGBT people today. Learn what the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy of the American military looks like to soldiers in the armed forces. Share the personal experiences of couples affected by laws banning gay marriage and people who have been victims of workplace discrimination.
