Through his skillful curation, [editor Jason Baumann] offers a corrective for what is too often a sanitized, homogenous, and whitewashed portrayal of academics and professionals about the event sometimes termed 'the hairpin drop heard around the world.' ... The first-person narratives collected here effectively spotlight the social inequalities surrounding the LGBTQ community, many of which persist today. A bold rallying cry that should help in the continuing fight for LGBTQ rights.
This masterful collection is perhaps one of the most exhaustive looks at the events surrounding Stonewall from the LGBTQ perspective and provides a wonderfully diverse cast of voices.
Excellent compilation of first-person accounts from before, during, and after the pivotal 1969 riot THE STONEWALL READER features a diverse array of voices folks from across the LGBTQ spectrum telling their stories over decades in essays and interviews and letters.
This significant book does welcome justice to an event that author Edmund White, who wrote the foreword, says sparked 'an oceanic change in thinking.'
The Stonewall Reader gives us a richer, messier, more dangerous picture of the Stonewall uprising, its foreground, and aftermath. The book wonderfully reflects how revolutionary moments rarely get portrayed accurately through single voices, and Baumann has produced here a history worth revisiting again and again.
An excellent companion to those famous bricks the patrons threw at police that night in June 1969 ( ) aims to correct a narrative that has so often excluded LGBTQ people of color. ( ) The book de-gentrifies the narrative, returning the street-smart stories of the original protesters to history. The inclusion of Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson in the During and After sections also subtly underlines the role of transgender people, as they tell the story first of that night and then of how their abandonment by the movement began almost immediately. The book s mix of familiar and unfamiliar didn t just re-contextualize the riots for me. I came to understand myself and my life differently. I didn t even know what I d lost or gained from these stories and their contexts. The Stonewall Reader seems designed to be widely adopted in classrooms and should be, but, to be sure, it is for anyone, even those who think they know this history.
Alexander Chee, The New Republic
An essential read for any member of the community who wants to learn about those who paved the way before us.
