Publisher's Summary

Marriage equality has surged across the country. Closet doors have burst open in business, entertainment, and even major-league sports. But as longtime advocate Michelangelo Signorile argues in his most provocative book yet, the excitement of such breathless change makes this moment more dangerous than ever.
Puncturing the illusion that victory is now inevitable, Signorile marshals stinging evidence that an age-old hatred, homophobia, is still a basic fact of American life. He exposes the bigotry of the brewing religious conservative backlash against LGBT rights, and challenges the complacency and hypocrisy of supposed allies in Washington, the media, and Hollywood.
Not just a wake-up call, It's Not Over is a battle plan for the fights to come in the march toward equality. Signorile tells the stories of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans who have refused to be merely tolerated and are demanding full acceptance. And he documents signs of hope in schools and communities that are finding new ways to combat ignorance, bullying, and fear.
Urgent and empowering, It's Not Over is a necessary audiobook from one of our most electrifying voices.

Even my mum was fascinated by this.

After years of trying to explain all the colours of the rainbow, politics internal and external to the community I think this book lifted the lid for her. it clearly lays out the history of various LGBT social justice campaigns and how modern America has responded along the way

my only critique is the US centric nature of the book, being from Europe myself /chuckle
