Brave journeys : profiles in gay and lesbian courage by David B Mixner ( Book )
17 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 651 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

Stranger among friends by David B Mixner ( )
4 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From my fear of coming out to coming on strong in the struggle for human rights, this is my American journey, the story of an outsider on the inside, a gay man proudly committed to a life of standing up for freedom. "President Clinton and I were born three days apart. We had both dreamed of serving our country. There was one difference: He could pursue his dream, while I felt I could not. The President was born straight and I was born gay." In this stirring personal history, one of America's most influential gay rights advocates recounts his extraordinary career as a policy maker and adviser to the major political leaders of our time, and his own often anguishing, ultimately triumphant life as a gay man. A longtime personal friend of Bill Clinton, in Stranger Among Friends David Mixner offers an insider's look at the power struggles that occur every day in our nation's capital and candid insights on the Clinton administration's successes and failures. Spanning three decades of human rights activism--from the behind-the-scenes negotiations to the painful betrayals to the hard-won victories--his forthright story unflinchingly explores what it means to be an outsider on the inside, and sends a message of hope to all who have ever stood up for what they believe
