In recent years, there has been substantial progress on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights in the United States. We are now, though, in a time of incredible political uncertainty for queer people. LGBTQ Social Movements provides an accessible introduction to mainstream LGBTQ movements in the U.S., illustrating the many forms that LGBTQ activism has taken since the mid-20th century. Covering a range of topics including the Stonewall uprising and gay liberation, AIDS politics, queer activism, marriage equality fights, youth action, and bisexual and transgender justice, Lisa M. Stulberg explores how marginalized people and communities have used a wide range of political and cultural tools to demand and create change. The five key themes that guide the book are assimilationism and liberationism as complex strategies for equality, the limits and possibilities of legal change, the role of art and popular culture in social change, the interconnectedness of social movements, and the role of privilege in movement organizing. This book is an important tool for understanding current LGBTQ politics and will be essential reading for students and scholars of sexuality, LGBTQ studies, and social movements.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Adeptly synthesizing decades of research and writing, charting both major events and central dynamics, Lisa Stulberg offers a foundation for understanding LGBTQ movements that is at once accessible and complex, informative and lively."
Joshua Gamson, University of San Francisco

"This is the book we have been waiting for - a comprehensive, concise, and engaging overview of the LGBT movement that is accessible not only to students and general readers, but scholars. Stulberg has managed to condense a vast amount of literature to provide the clearest, best organized, and most up-to-date review of the LGBT movement available."
Verta Taylor, University of California Santa Barbara
