Tracy Baim, author of this new book, will be at the library to discuss and sign copies. The work of Barbara Gittings in the LGBT movement spanned from the late 1950s until her death in 2007. Her partner in life, Kay Lahusen, photographed many of the movement’s biggest actions during the 1960s, and more than 270 photos accompany this biography, making it a historical photo album of the movement. Gittings was active in a wide range of pre- and post-Stonewall groups, including the Daughters of Bilitis. Perhaps most importantly, Gittings was among the leaders of the push to change the American Psychiatric Association diagnosis of homosexuality as an illness, and she was among those pushing the American Library Association to be more inclusive of gays.

Tracy Baim is author of Barbara Gittings” Gay Pioneer and 10 other books on LGBT history, including Obama and the Gays: A Political Marriage, and Gay Press, Gay Power. She is co-founder and publisher of Windy City Times newspaper in Chicago.
