On December 11, 1973, Mark Segal disrupted a live broadcast of the CBS Evening News when he sat on the desk directly between the camera and news anchor Walter Cronkite, yelling, "Gays protest CBS prejudice!" He was wrestled to the studio floor by the stagehands on live national television, thus ending LGBT invisibility. But this one victory left many more battles to fight, and creativity was required to find a way to challenge stereotypes surrounding the LGBT community. Mark Segal's job, as he saw it, was to show the nation who gay people are: our sons, daughters, fathers, and mothers. Because of activists like Mark Segal, whose life work is dramatically detailed in this poignant and important memoir, today there are openly LGBT people working in the White House and throughout corporate America. An entire community of gay world citizens is now finding the voice that they need to become visible.

It was enjoyable in it's own way--I'll have to admit that I didn't expect it to cover such a long period of time. I was under the impression (probably as a result of reading about the uproar over the Stonewall movie) that it was going to cover that specific period of time. God knows, just from the little he writes here, that he probably could fill a book just talking about the time period from 1969 to 1975. I hope he does another one that goes into what he and the people still alive he knew back then did and saw and lived in the early years.
That said--the stories he tells are interesting. It's a welcome addition to expanding the history of the gay movement.
