You must read “A Queer History” by EJ Graff

Teaching undergrads who were born in the 1990s is an odd experience for me, even though I’m still youngish (born in the late 1970s). It’s hard to convey just how new the widespread acceptance of gay rights is, and how dangerous it was, not very long ago, to be out and queer in the US. EJ Graff’s lovely autobiographical essay provides a great perspective on the incredible shift in American culture that took place between the signing of DOMA and the Supreme Court’s rejection of it.
