In Search of Stonewall: The Riots at 50, The G&LR at 25

The Gay & Lesbian Review reached a milestone with the publication of its first issue of 2019: the completion of its 25th year. To commemorate this achievement, the editor has published a book titled In Search of Stonewall, a collection of articles about the LGBT movement’s founding event.

The G&LR was founded in 1994, which was the 25th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. So this year both Stonewall and The G&LR are celebrating important birthdays. In Search of Stonewall commemorates both anniversaries with a collection of our best articles on the early struggle for equality.

This is a rare and important collection of essays about the aftermath of the riots in New York City and across the US. The book brings together many of the major LGBT writers and activists of our time in an authoritative collection on the signal event of the modern LGBT movement. Included are the following 31 contributors, whose articles have been selected from the 136 issues published from 1994 to 2018:

Dennis Altman, David B. Boyce, Michael Bronski,  Frank Browning, David Carter, John D’Emilio, Steven F. Dansky, Michael Denneny, Martin Duberman, Lillian Faderman, D.
