Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From a top-gun pilot in the U.S. Navy to an authority on antigay violence, from a member of the Clinton administration to a leading Shakespearean actor, Brave Journeys tells the stirring stories of seven intrepid men and women who effectively challenged the status quo and thereby altered the political and societal landscape of the world we live in.

David Mixner, author of Stranger Among Friends and himself a renowned activist, political adviser, and White House insider, presents a vivid account of seven heroes of the gay rights movement who put their careers and lives on the line in their quest for equality.

Written in collaboration with Dennis Bailey, Brave Journeys is David Mixner's eloquent tribute to gay men and lesbians who have made a difference. Rich in private bravery and public risk, these profiles comprise a vivid map of the gay rights movement over the last fifty years — and individually they testify to the power of courage to force change against profoundly overwhelming odds.
