Reviews

"Ball revels in a handful of important legal victories, while also delving deeply into the personal stories of each case, resulting in a richly textured account that is part history book, part colorful reportage."-- Beth Greenfield, Time Out New York

"While the gay and lesbian rights movement had its start in 1969 at the Stonewall in New York City, it has yet to have a book tell the story of its poster children and the legal struggles in which they fought. This volume amply fills this void. . . . Well written, exciting, and fun to read."--Choice Magazine "Ball dramatically resurrects each case, bringing together opposing attorneys and litigants to show how ordinary human conflict can translate to extraordinary civil rights gain. This groundbreaking book is crucial if we are to understand the history of the rights we take for granted."--Mary Bonauto, Civil Rights Project director for GLAD, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders "Ball approaches his subject with vigor and sensitivity and makes a poignant plea for justice."--Publishers Weekly
