520    "The right of same-sex couples to marry provoked decades 
       of intense conflict before it was upheld by the U.S. 
       Supreme Court in 2015. Yet some of the most divisive 
       contests shaping the quest for marriage equality occurred 
       not on the culture-war front lines but within the ranks of
       LGBTQ advocates. Nathaniel Frank tells the dramatic story 
       of how an idea that once seemed unfathomable--and for many
       gays and lesbians undesirable--became a legal and moral 
       right in just half a century. Awakening begins in the 
       1950s, when millions of gays and lesbians were afraid to 
       come out, let alone fight for equal treatment. Across the 
       social upheavals of the next two decades, a gay rights 
       movement emerged with the rising awareness that same-sex 
       love is equal to love everywhere. As movement leaders and 
       ordinary gay people created new communities, alliances, 
       and ideas, a tight-knit cadre of (mostly) gay and lesbian 
       lawyers began to focus on legal recognition for same-sex 
       couples, eventually creating a long-term strategy to win 
       marriage rights in the courts. But first they had to win 
       over members of their own LGBTQ community who declined to 
       make marriage a priority, while reining in others who 
       charged ahead heedless of their carefully laid plans, and 
       often at odds with them. All the while, they had to fight 
       against virulent antigay opponents and capture the 
       American center by spreading the simple message that love 
       is love--ultimately propelling the LGBTQ community, and 
       America, immeasurably closer to justice"--|cProvided by
