In Brave Journeys: Profiles of Gay and Lesbian Courage, David Mixner and Dennis Bailey have compiled portraits of eight people who did extraordinary things in the face of homophobia. People like Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon, who founded the first lesbian organization, Daughters of Bilitis, in the 1950s. And Navy fighter pilot Tracy Thorne, who was discharged when his sexual orientation became known and is now fighting this discrimination in court. The stories of Del, Phyllis, Tracy, and others are told in this exceptional book on the indomitability of the human spirit.
