Before, During, and After Stonewall: 100 Years of Heroes and History
The Right Side of History tells the 100-year history of queer activism in a series of revealing close-ups, first-person accounts, and intimate snapshots of LGBT pioneers and radicals. This diverse cast stretches from the Edwardian period to today, including first-person accounts of the key protest that is at the heart of the 2015 movie Stonewall.
The book shows how LGBT folk have always been in the forefront of progressive social evolution in the United States. It references heroes like Abraham Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bayard Rustin, Harvey Milk, and Edie Windsor. Equally, the book honors names that aren’t in history books, from participants in the Names Project, a national phenomenon memorializing 94,000 AIDS victims, to underground artists and writers.

A bunch of essays.
Some of the pieces were more historically accurate than others. Overall a lot of strawman were slain. And the characterization and demonization of their opponents was laughable.I originally was looking for a more organized history which this definitely is not. I gave it three stars because some of the stories were very emotionally compelling even when lacking factual/historic veracity.
