Struggle from Within: Mending the Flaws of the Modern Gay and Lesbian Rights Movement
Massimino, Julia Ann.
REPORT 1999 M3865 Public Affairs Library

For over thirty years, gay and lesbian Americans have been organizing a political movement to gain equal rights under the law. Today, that movement is a politically viable voice for civil rights. This report briefly surveys the history of the modern gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender rights movement, examines its goals, and identifies its flaws as a social movement. The focus of this report is the changes that must occur in order to acheive both social justice and equality for the members of the GLBT community.
