Brave journeys : profiles in gay and lesbian courage by David B Mixner( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation These are brave journeys indeed. The men and women whose stories are told in these pages did not set out to move mountains; they sought only to live good and productive lives enriched by warmth and love. But being gay in a straight world often compelled them to acts of courage that are lessons for us all.Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon are a San Francisco couple who founded the first lesbian organization, the Daughters of Bilitis. Bostonian Elaine Noble was the first openly gay person to be elected to the Massachusetts state legislature. Sir Ian McKellan, the great actor, is as widely esteemed here as in Britain. Bay Area politician Roberta Achtenberg faced the venomous homophobic wrath of Jesse Helms in Senate confirmation hearings that shocked all who witnessed them. Tracy Thorne, a U.S. Navy fighter pilot whose life's ambition was to be a flier in the military, found he could no longer stomach the official policy of secrecy, and is appealing his discharge from the Navy to the Supreme Court. Hispanic-American Dianne Hardy-Garcia, executive director of the Lesbian and Gay Rights Lobby of Texas, has become a formidable crusader against the grisly hate crimes that have become all too stories on our TV screens.Unflamboyantly inspiring, this book is deeply human testimony of the power of courage to force change against profoundly overwhelming odds
