Placing GLBT people at the center of the history of the twentieth century,
Vicki L. Eaklor''s Queer America: A People''s GLBT History of the United States is a major new effort to popularize a long-overlooked chapter in the American experience.

Written in the tradition of Howard Zinn''s A People''s History of the United States, Queer America, provides a decade-by-decade overview of major issues and events in GLBT history including the Harlem Renaissance, changes in military policy, the Stonewall riots, organizations and alliances, AIDS, same-sex marriage, representation in the media, and legal battles. Eaklor brings the steady hand and perspective of an historian to the task of writing a sweeping work of narrative nonfiction that is both meaningful and relevant to all Americans.

Queer America includes a rich array of visual materials, including sidebars highlighting major debates and vignettes focusing on key individuals.
