Review:

Virtual Equality: The Mainstreaming Of Gay And Lesbian Liberation is the amazing story of the gay and lesbian community's transformation from a hidden minority into a visible presence in the American mainstream. Urvashi Vaid has produced a powerful history of gay America's struggle for equality as well as an inspiring manifesto of visionary politics and hard-earned pragmatism. "Virtual equality" means gays enjoy access to power, but no real power; can pay taxes, but not expect the government to protect them; can be visible, but vulnerable to discrimination and violence. With insights from her years of activism, Vaid reasons that the struggle between assimilation and liberation has roadblocked the gay movement for years and that virtual equality represents the limits of mainstreaming. Guided by an inclusive moral vision , yet grounded by realpolitik, Vaid challenges the gay community to face the forces that divide it and begin the work necessary to achieve genuine equality with the rest of America. -- Midwest Book Review
