This is a wonderful, engaging history of the gay civil rights movement, and gave me quite a lot to think about. Hirshman talks quite persuasively about how the gay civil rights movement came from much further behind than either the black civil rights movement or the feminist movement but managed to keep going after either of the others ran out of steam. Her essay "What Stonewall Got Right that Occupy Got Wrong," available online, is also worth reading.

I had to laugh when coming to the end of the book and realized that the progress bar on my Kindle was only at 53%. Leave it to a lawyer to write a book that's 47% fine print.
