Movements Then and Now

by Maison Horton


The fight for recognition, rights, dignity, equality, and more by members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community has spanned decades. This display provides readers with a wide view of the many movements and people who have made or are making change possible for queer-identifying individuals. From Marsha P. Johnson's leadership in the Stonewall Riots, to the historic shifts rippling from the Supreme Court's ruling in the Obergefell vs. Hodges case, these eBooks are sure to inspire you.
