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.

There are two gay writers named Jonathan Katz. One has D. as his middle initial, the other N. Since you give credit to both it is confusing as to who is involved in the book or are they both, etc. Just noticed much of your misinformation comes from Amazon. I hope the book is better researched.
