Hirshman: "Victory: The Triumphant Gay Revolution"

Linda Hirshman has published a new book, "Victory: The Triumphant Gay Revolution."  The book's description is here:

Supreme Court lawyer and political pundit Linda Hirshman details the stunning story of how a resourceful and dedicated minority transformed the notion of American marriage equality and forged a campaign for cultural change that will serve as a model for all future political movements. In the vein of Taylor Branch’s classic Parting of the Waters, Hirshman’s groundbreaking Victory: The Triumphant Gay Revolution is the powerful story of a massive shift in American culture. Hirshman offers an insider’s view of the crucial struggle that is leading to change, incorporating her unique experiences and insights and drawing upon new interviews—with movement titans such as Frank Kameny and Phyllis Lyon, with next-generation activists such as Evan Wolfson of Freedom to Marry, and with allies including the likes of New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand—to create a comprehensive, inspiring history of change in our time.

The title only tells me that the author takes a lot of pride in the matter.

Victory? Not to marginalize the accomplishments of the LGBT community, but I think it's a little early to be using the word "Victory." Maybe after same sex couples are allowed to marry in all 50 states.
