A Portrait of Queer America: Final Thoughts

Through this independent student research project I have been able to explore a relatively in-depth look at queer history in America. My initial goal was to gain a solid understanding of the gay civil rights movement so I could move forward with my intentions of one day being both a gay activist and working for an LGBTQ non-profit. In the future I hope to do a much more extensive look at the last ten years in queer history and will be sure to link that endeavor on this blog. This has been an extremely interesting and rewarding experience, and I know I will use this blog in the future as a reference.

  1. Very late to this, but thank you for a remarkable exploration of this under-studied subject. The entire concept of Queer Nation is a subject whose time has come. Yours will be invaluable as the gay arena moves forward.

    An extraordinary effort!
