    This writer, Michael Bronski surprised me with facts I could┬┐ve

    This writer, Michael Bronski surprised me with facts I could’ve never imagined. His way of writing and informing a reader about the past really pulls you into the book and makes you more intrigued to find out more. I usually can’t finish a book cover to cover unless I’m honestly interested in the topic and he did that for me. His insightful way of showing how gays have struggled and how history was for them really shocked me and confuses me that same-sex rights isn’t more familiar in America. I overall rate this book a eight out of a ten, some of the ways the writer describes situations can be complicated to understand, but it’s definitely a must read book and a way for someone to challenge their views on gay rights. I believe that this book had a significant theme to it. That theme was to encourage society to see how queers have struggle since the 1600s and why they deserve the freedom they didn’t have throughout history. It’s the twenty first century and the fact that we still see gay people commit suicide and have to be in a civil union should make us want to help as much as possible to keep our nation for what it is intended, the best in the world. You read things about presidents, art, war, and so much more things in America that consisted of the gay community. If all of America read this book society would see how queers have struggled throughout the decades and they deserve the rights everyone else does, such a powerful book.
