The Stonewall Generation: LGBTQ Elders on Sex, Activism, and Aging
by Jane Fleishman

In The Stonewall Generation, sexuality researcher Jane Fleishman shares the stories of fearless elders in the LGBTQ community who came of age around the time of the Stonewall Riots of 1969. In candid interviews, they lay bare their struggles, strengths, activism, and sexual liberation in the context of the political movements of the 1960s and 1970s and today. A powerful resource for anyone committed to intersectional activism and social justice, The Stonewall Generation includes the voices of those frequently marginalized in mainstream tellings of LGBTQ history, lifting up the voices of people of color, transgender people, bisexual people, drag queens, and sex workers.

A Queer History of The United States
by Michael Bronski

Intellectually dynamic and endlessly provocative, A Queer History of the United States is more than a "who’s who" of queer history; it is a book that radically challenges how we understand American history. Drawing upon primary-source documents, literature, and cultural histories, noted scholar and activist Michael Bronski charts the breadth of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender history from 1492 to the 1990s. An engrossing and revelatory testament to how the LGBTQ experience has profoundly shaped the United States.   

A Queer History of the United States
for Young People
by Michael Bronski, adapted by Richie Chevat

It is crucial for LGBTQ youth to know their history. But this history is not easy to find since it’s rarely taught in schools or commemorated in other ways. A Queer History of the United States for Young People corrects this and demonstrates that LGBTQ people have long been vital to shaping our understanding of what America is today. Through engrossing narratives, letters, and more, the book encourages young readers of all identities to feel pride at the accomplishments of the LGBTQ people who came before them and to use history as a guide to the future.
