Victory: The Triumphant . Given that the gay rights saga is very much in process, the ending of Hirshman’s book is a cliffhanger, but she does a masterful job of making her readers, whether they’re familiar with the material or not, want to know what happens next.

Linda Hirshman’s Victory: The Triumphant Gay Revolution sets out to explain, tracing the history of gay rights from the early 20th century to the present.

Supreme Court lawyer and political pundit Linda Hirshman details the stunning story of how a resourceful and dedicated minority transformed the notion of American marriage equality and forged a campaign for cultural change that will serve as a model for all future political movements. In the vein of Taylor Branch’s classic Parting of the Waters, Hirshman’s groundbreaking Victory: The Triumphant Gay Revolution is the powerful story of a massive shift in American culture. Hirshman offers an insider’s view of the crucial struggle that is leading to change, incorporating her unique experiences and insights and drawing upon new interviews—with movement titans such as Frank Kameny and Phyllis Lyon, with next-generation activists such as Evan Wolfson of Freedom to Marry, and with allies including the likes of New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand—to create a comprehensive, inspiring history of change in our time.
  • Linda Hirshman has done a great deed in pulling together all this legal history of the LGBT movement into one volume. I enjoyed the book from that point of view, and will find it very useful as part of my research for the book I myself am writing, called STONEWALL STRONG, the first nationwide examination by a health/medical journalist of gay men's resilience. VICTORY convinced me that the law--anti-gay law in particular--both codifies and perpetuates the fear and prejudice of heterosexuals against gay men, lesbians, trans people, and really anyone who varies in some frowned-upon way from the alleged heterosexual "norm." By changing laws--no more sodomy laws to prohibit same-sex intimacy; no more legal grounds for not recognizing same-sex marriages--LGBT people push America to live up to the Constitution's promise of "equal justice under law." VICTORY details how, exactly, these changes came about. It's definitely an essential book for anyone interested in LGBT history--and really American history of the latter 20th and early 21st centuries.

  • This book is great for anyone - gay or straight - who wants to learn about the history of the glbt movement in America. The book is written in a journalistic style with a bit of humor thrown in here and there, which makes it very enjoyable and readable in the midst of facts, dates, etc. The author tells a story rather than just berate the reader with yards and yards of historical data, which is really nice. She interviews prominent individuals from the history of the movement and tells their personal stories as well, which adds a really nice touch. Overall, I've learned a lot from this book and have recommended it to others. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it's repetitious in places, mainly because I suspect the sections were written separately from one another and then compiled later into the book. Other than that, it's a good book and work reading esp. since the glbt movement is in the headlines every week now.

  • I first came across this book in a bookstore in DC’s Dupont Circle in 2017. Given the state of politics over the preceding year and a half, it seemed like a good time to read about a movement. Victory did a good job of giving an overview of the state of the LGBTQ movement in the 20th-21st centuries. It was certainly very gay white male heavy, but the book acknowledges this, and frequently references the fissures and exclusionary traits of the movement when it comes to lesbians and trans activists. Overall, I liked the book and it was a good reading of history pre-2105.

  • This is an important and ambitious book. It surveys almost a century of gay opression and activism. It is seminal, and surely other books will build on this and add to the story. It is a fast-paced account, rich in what it covers. However, I agree with most of the complaints. Many names are given, but few personalities emerge. The author lapses, rather unconsciously into stereotyping, such as: "Muscular, independent, and proletarian, O'Brien was no one's notion of a homosexual." Or even, "...the Orthodox, Jewish, heterosexual female, improbably blond and blue-eyed Marilyn Haft..." The book is about the activists, not the many other gays and lesbians who, emboldened by the activists and by identity movements in general, quietly came out to family, friends, colleagues and employers, making the straight community aware that those they loved, worked with, and admired constituted the respectable and otherwise ordinary folks who were seeking equality. She does not give attention to those gays and lesbians who found partners and enjoyed monogamous relationships for decades; the focus is on the gay men who seek multiple partners, giving a lop-sided account.

  • A richly detailed political history of gay rights movement from roughly Stonewall to the present focusing mainly on the political and legal strategies of the its significant leaders. The author thankfully eschews the use of hegemonic theoretical paradigms that normally plague the discipline (I think the Q word is only mentioned once!) in favor of a traditional narrative historiography. Without indulging in abstract metaphysical theory (ala Queer Theory/lit crit) or speculative sociology (New Social Movement theory), the author analyzes the gay rights movement in the context of liberal democratic theory and its two antecedents - african americans and women.

  • Excellent chronological history and I experienced it from the 40's to the present. Well written and I have sure changed my mind about some presidencies and focus on the family. I am also changing political parties to democrat. Great book!

  • Excellent, well-researched history of American gays and lesbians and theit path to recognition. Hirshman is a very readable author who brings personal stories to enrich her writing. A terrific read!

  • What a really great history filled book. I would recommend it to anyone who would like the real story.
