Overview

Gay Issues and Politics: Marriage, the Military, & Work Place Discrimination by Jaime A. Seba

News media, television, music, and films are filled with images of gay and lesbian people today. But how did gay people reach this point of visibility and growing acceptance? Explore the history of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community in the United States, from the horrifying medical treatments of the early 20th century to the 1969 Stonewall riots to the international LGBT movement for equality.

Then take a closer look at three of the most relevant issues facing LGBT people today. Learn what the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy of the American military really looks like to women and men in the armed forces. Share the personal experiences of couples affected by laws banning gay marriage and people who have been victims of workplace discrimination.
