This addition to the Great Events series chronicles important historical events that have identified, defined, and legally established the rights of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities. In the last ten years alone, the world has witnessed significant events that have broken down barriers, both socially and legally, making enormous strides to end discrimination against the LGBTQ community. Just some of these events include:
  • 2011 - "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is repealed.
  • 2012- Barack Obama becomes the first sitting US president to publicly support the freedom for LGBT couples to marry.
  • 2013- The US Supreme Court rules that legally married, same-sex couples are entitled to federal benefits.
  • 2015- The Supreme Court rules that states cannot ban same-sex marriage.
  • 2016- Pentagon lifts the ban on transgender people serving openly in the US military.

In depth, yet accessible essays provide a summary of the event and discuss the event's significance and historical impact.
This set selects events that help to mark the definition of "gender," the emergence of social, cultural, and political movements, and the struggles to gain civil rights.

Defining Documents in American History: LGBTQ+
"A stunning collection of official commentary and memorabilia, this two-volume set deserves a place in public, high-school, and college libraries." - Booklist Starred Review
April 2018
ISBN: 978-1-68217-894-2
Price: $295
This set   offers in-depth analysis of 35 primary source documents drawn from the ongoing movement to achieve recognition and equality for members of the LGBTQ+ community, beginning with Emma Goldman's "On the Unjust Treatment of Homosexuals," written in 1923, through Danica Roem's speech in 2017, celebrating her election as the first openly transgender elected official in United States History.

The material is organized into three, historical groupings:
  • Early Developments
  • Coming Out
  • Growing Ever Stronger

These documents provide a compelling view of the many important aspects of LGBTQ+ history, including the American Psychological Association's 1973 statement that homosexuality is not a mental disorder, changes to the Boys Scouts of America membership policy, and excerpts from  Obergefell v. Hodges , the Supreme Court decision guaranteeing the right to marry same-sex couples under both the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Critical Insights: LBGTQ Literature
"A discerning resource for further education." -ARBA
So much of great literature centers on explorations of gender, sex, and sexuality. What does it mean to be a proper man or woman; what if one cannot be properly called either? Should one wield one’s sexual power politically? What is the relation between law, divine or secular, and sexuality?

This volume examines the relatively new, and expanding, genre of gay and lesbian literature through a diverse set of texts. Essays survey the critical conversation regarding the theme, explore its cultural and historical contexts, and offer close and comparative readings of key texts in the genre.

Each essay is 2,500 to 5,000 words in length, and all essays conclude with a list of "Works Cited," along with endnotes. Finally, the volume's appendixes offer a section of useful reference resources.
