The struggle to remove the stigma of sickness surrounding same-sex love has a long history. In 1973 the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from its diagnostic classification of mental illness. But the groundwork for this pivotal decision was laid decades earlier. American gay and lesbian activists chose scientific research as a path for advancing homosexual rights. The history of gay and lesbian research began in the late 19th century and continued to the role in challenging the illness model in the 1970s. By examining archival sources and unpublished manuscripts, Minton reveals the substantial accomplishments made by key researchers and relates their life stories. He also considers the contributions of mainstream sexologists such as Alfred C. Kinsey and Evelyn Hooker, who supported the cause of homosexual rights through the advancement of scientific knowledge. By uncovering this hidden chapter in the story of gay liberation, this book contributes to both the history of science and the history of sexuality.
