    An excellent, albeit heartbreaking, read on the right to marry in the United States This highlights the intersectionality of the right to marry Those working toward equality had and still have their hands full.

    Full review forthcoming in Library Journal I m struggling with fatigue over marriage equality titles, since the emphasis on marriage as a marker of queer acceptance is such a double edged sword But I really appreciated the multi vocal aspect of this Lambda Legal title, featuring voices from across the nation and telling pieces of the marriage equality struggle from the 1970s to the present, and beyond This is very much a from the trenches anthology, rather than an overview of the historical Full review forthcoming in Library Journal I m struggling with fatigue over marriage equality titles, since the emphasis on marriage as a marker of queer acceptance is such a double edged sword But I really appreciated the multi vocal aspect of this Lambda Legal title, featuring voices from across the nation and telling pieces of the marriage equality struggle from the 1970s to the present, and beyond This is very much a from the trenches anthology, rather than an overview of the historical narrative, but it is a little too soon to try for that so I m glad they didn t attempt to tell The Story
