Wednesday, March 13, 2019

KIRKUS REVIEWS -- Using more than 200 documents, editor Stein (History/San Francisco State University; Rethinking the Gay and Lesbian Movement, 2012, etc.) contextualizes the New York City rebellion of transgender and gay bar patrons against a homophobic police raid. Framed in three subdivided parts, each section contains extended excerpts of newspaper articles, fliers, court decisions, and other accounts. Together, they create a mosaic of the cultural and political realities before, during and after the riots.
