Marilyn Humphries's stunning photos show what the struggle for equality looks like and what it feels like. [The authors] have documented an important piece of America's ongoing efforts to end discrimination against gay people and same-sex couples.—Mary L. Bonauto, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, lead counsel, Goodridge v. Department of Public Health

"What stands out in this masterful and nuanced collection of photographs-and the politically astute accompanying text-are the individual efforts over many years that led to the collective triumph for same-sex marriage."—Charlotte Abbott, the Advocate

"The pictures of protests and rallies-both the pro and the anti forces swarming with energy-make you feel like you're witnessing a combination of the American Revolution and a sizzling Red Sox game."—Mopsy Strange Kennedy, Improper Bostonian

"A remarkable chronicle of exactly how social change happens. Marilyn Humphries's vivid photographic documentation of the fight for same-sex marriage hardly needs any elaboration, but Kahn and Gozemba's accompanying legal history is riveting. Words and pictures together create a moving, human portrait of representative democracy at work." —Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home and Dykes to Watch Out For
