「至今最完整紀錄美國同性戀爭取權利歷史的書籍。」──《經濟學人》

美國同性戀革命起始於1950年代。當時,法律視他們為罪犯、精神科醫師認為他們有心理疾病、教會視他們為罪人、社會大眾則是以仇恨迫害……在如此的歷史背景下,一些勇敢的人們開始反擊,為1960年代之後的革命性改變鋪路。

作者莉莉安.費德曼為知名歷史學家,根據嚴謹的研究與超過150場訪談,記錄的不只是冰冷的事實,而是藉由真人真事精彩描述呈現的生動歷史。她與政治人物、軍事人物、法律界社會運動人士與LGBT族群(女同性戀者、男同性戀者、雙性戀者、跨性別者)成員進行訪談,紀錄他們多年來承受的不公義、早期的抗爭活動、失敗與成功。她不僅描繪同性戀運動主要的支持者與反對者、探討大眾較為熟知的歷史事件,如1950年代的「獵女巫」行動、1960年代的抗爭活動、1969年的石牆暴動、1980年代早期的反動、愛滋病危機、婚姻平權的阻礙,更記錄較不為人知的的相關人物與故事,也誠實呈現這些社會運動人士的缺陷與內部衝突。

作者認為對於LGBT社群而言,受平等對待並不是最終目標,因為美國同性戀族群雖然已具有完全公民身分,卻離社會的完全接納與文化接受仍有一段距離。許多年輕的同性戀者仍會遭受霸凌、必須在有敵意的環境下出櫃、雙性戀者被以懷疑的異樣眼光看待,而跨性別者與其他LGBT族群相比,其權益仍落後好幾十年,尚未受到完全接納。

費德曼深入研究媒體報導與立法檔案,提供完整論述,也藉由身處重要歷史現場見證者的訪談,為大眾熟知的歷史事件注入新生命,是此領域最完整也最權威的書籍,關注社會正義的讀者不能錯過。

The sweeping story of the struggle for gay and lesbian rights—based on amazing interviews with politicians, military figures, and members of the entire LGBT community who face these challenges every day: “This is the history of the gay and lesbian movement that we’ve been waiting for” (The Washington Post).

The fight for gay and lesbian civil rights—the years of outrageous injustice, the early battles, the heart-breaking defeats, and the victories beyond the dreams of the gay rights pioneers—is the most important civil rights issue of the present day. In “the most comprehensive history to date of America’s gay-rights movement” (The Economist), Lillian Faderman tells this unfinished story through the dramatic accounts of passionate struggles with sweep, depth, and feeling.

The Gay Revolution begins in the 1950s, when gays and lesbians were criminals, psychiatrists saw them as mentally ill, churches saw them as sinners, and society victimized them with hatred. Against this dark backdrop, a few brave people began to fight back, paving the way for the revolutionary changes of the 1960s and beyond. Faderman discusses the protests in the 1960s; the counter reaction of the 1970s and early eighties; the decimated but united community during the AIDS epidemic; and the current hurdles for the right to marriage equality.

“A compelling read of a little-known part of our nation’s history, and of individuals whose stories range from heart-wrenching to inspiring to enraging to motivational” (Chicago Tribune), The Gay Revolution paints a nuanced portrait of the LGBT civil rights movement. A defining account, this is the most complete and authoritative book of its kind.
