About the Author:

A former professor of English and women’s studies, Patricia A. Gozemba is the coauthor of Pockets of Hope: How Students and Teachers Change the World. She is also a founding member of The History Project, which has been documenting LGBT Boston since 1980. The former editor of Sojourner: The Women’s Forum, Karen Kahn also edited Frontline Feminism: Essays from Sojourner’s” First Twenty Years. Gozemba and Kahn married in September 2005; they live in Salem, Massachusetts. Marilyn Humphries is an independent photojournalist whose work over the past twenty-five years has appeared in numerous publications, ranging from the New York Times and the Progressive to Bay Windows, Gay Community News, and the Boston Phoenix. She lives in Beverly, Massachusetts.

Review:

Marilyn Humphries's stunning photos show what the struggle for equality looks like and what it feels like. [The authors] have documented an important piece of America's ongoing efforts to end discrimination against gay people and same-sex couples.—Mary L. Bonauto, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, lead counsel, Goodridge v. Department of Public Health

"What stands out in this masterful and nuanced collection of photographs-and the politically astute accompanying text-are the individual efforts over many years that led to the collective triumph for same-sex marriage."—Charlotte Abbott, the Advocate

"The pictures of protests and rallies-both the pro and the anti forces swarming with energy-make you feel like you're witnessing a combination of the American Revolution and a sizzling Red Sox game."—Mopsy Strange Kennedy, Improper Bostonian

"A remarkable chronicle of exactly how social change happens. Marilyn Humphries's vivid photographic documentation of the fight for same-sex marriage hardly needs any elaboration, but Kahn and Gozemba's accompanying legal history is riveting. Words and pictures together create a moving, human portrait of representative democracy at work." —Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home and Dykes to Watch Out For
