“Makes the case clearly and convincingly . . . The fight will be long, but not impossible to win. All that’s needed is for the LGBT community to realize that ‘it’s not over.’¹” — Washington Post

“Visionary . . . Prescient . . . Signorile has brilliant advice for the future.” — Advocate
 
“Exquisite[ly] tim[ed] . . . Even with marriage equality ascendant in nearly all corners of the country, the fight for real equality is not over. The most serious threat the gay rights movement faces may in fact be what Signorile calls ‘victory blindness,’ or ‘the dangerous illusion that we’ve almost won.’¹” — American Prospect

Drawing on provocative new research into the psychological roots of prejudice, he shatters myths and ranges through Washington, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, and beyond to reveal the truth about the battles to come.

UPDATED WITH A NEW AFTERWORD

For twenty-five years, Michelangelo Signorile has been one of America s most incisive critics and influential activists in the movement for gay equality, and It s Not Over demonstrates he is better than ever . . . A penetrating look at one of the great social movements of our time . . . Razor-sharp . . . Stirring. Glenn Greenwald, The Intercept

Few calls to action are as necessary as the one in [It s Not Over] . . . I can t urge it enough on people. Alexander Chee, Literary Hub

Michelangelo Signorile is the author of five books, including the best-selling Queer in America. He hosts the Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM Radio and is an editor-at-large for the Huffington Post s Gay Voices. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, and numerous other publications.
"

From the Inside Flap:

Marriage equality has surged across the country. Closet doors have burst open in business, entertainment, and even major-league sports. But as journalist and advocate Michelangelo Signorile argues in his most provocative book yet, the excitement of such breathless change makes this moment uniquely dangerous. Puncturing the illusion that victory is now inevitable, Signorile confronts truths that have been hiding in plain sight, and marshals new research and stinging evidence to reveal just how deep America s current of homophobia runs and how it still evades our efforts to eradicate it. He journeys into the heart of the conservative political machine to expose the religious right s renewed and rebranded backlash against gay rights. With piercing insight born of decades of reporting, Signorile offers an incisive critique of Washington, the media, and Hollywood, challenging the hypocrisy of supposed allies whose complacency has become a roadblock to progress.

Not just a wake-up call, It s Not Over is also a battle plan for the fights to come in the march toward equality. Signorile tells the inspiring stories of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans who have refused to be merely tolerated or worse and are demanding full acceptance. And he documents signs of hope in schools and communities finding new ways to combat ignorance, bullying, and fear. Urgent and empowering, It s Not Over is a much-needed book from one of our most electrifying voices."
