Description of this Book

The history of the LGBT movement is told through personal stories and firsthand accounts of the movement's key events, like the 1950s 'Lavender Scare', the Stonewall Inn uprising, and the AIDS crisis. Readers will learn how many famous historical members of the LGBT community kept their sexual orientation a secret in order to avoid persecution and be inspired by the many pioneering gay people in history. It will provide questions and discussion points, for example around the use of the word 'gay'. This book will also include a further information section with extensive weblinks for advice and support.
