Guiding questions for content this week:

Again, note that these questions are here to help guide you through the main themes and ideas. These are not your discussion questions. When you participate in the discussion forum, make sure to respond to the discussion questions I post.


  • What was the context of discrimination that helped to spur activism for LGBTQ/queer rights beginning in the 1950s?
  • How did medical science both stigmatize queer people and facilitate, in positive way, the creation of queer identities?
  • What did queer identity look like in the 19th and early 20th centuries?
  • Why was the community formed in gay and lesbian bars essential in the formation of identity and community, and how does this relate to the emergence of activism in the 1960s and 1970s?
  • What political differences existed between the homophile movement and the gay liberation movement?
  • Why did the Stonewall Riot happen? What does it have to do with the emergence of a mass movement for gay rights?
  • What was the influence of Women’s Liberation on Gay Liberation?
  • How successful was the gay liberation movement, considering the rightwing backlash by the late 1970s?
  • Why did queer people revive their activism in the midst of the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s and 1990s?


  • Why was the riot at Compton’s cafeteria different from previous outbursts of activism/riots?
  • How did the movements of the 1960s influence transgender activism in San Francisco?
  • What were some of the issues faced by transgender people in the 1960s that helped to spur their activism?
  • Why ultimately was the riot at Stonewall more influential than the Compton’s cafeteria riot on a national scale? (use the lecture and the reading to answer this one).
  • What role did trans women of color play in leading the movement for transgender liberation?

Bonus Material:

Documentary: Outrage ’69

This is about the Stonewall Riots of 1969, often referred to as the spark for gay liberation. Every year Pride parades are held at the end of June specifically to commemorate the riots at the Stonewall Inn. This is the entire documentary. You can get extra credit for watching this or reading or watching any of what follows.

Documentary: Screaming Queens

This is a documentary made by Susan Stryker about the Compton Cafeteria riots in San Francisco in 1966, which she spends some time discussing in your reading.

DocumentaryBefore Stonewall

This documentary chronicles LGBTQ history before the Stonewall riots of 1969. Here’s the entire documentary on YouTube. A much better quality version can be found on Kanopy through the ARC Library website.

Documentary: After Stonewall

This discusses some key moments in queer history after the Stonewall riots. This is the trailer — watch the whole thing on Kanopy through the ARC library website.

Documentary: Pay It No Mind: The Life and Times of Marsha P. Johnson

This documentary is about Marsha Johnson, a key figure in transgender history. 

Latina USA Radio Interview: Sylvia Rivera: A Forgotten Hero of the Stonewall Riots.

This short interview was aired on Latina USA, an NPR show. Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson were good friends as activists for the rights of trans* people in New York City in the 1960s and 1970s. (This one is too short for extra credit).

“For Today I Am a Boy” by Antony and the Johnsons

Here’s a song I remember liking several years ago but was just reminded of. Thought I’d share something different.

“Gentleman Jack” TV show

This is a new TV series on HBO! It’s a fictionalized account about the life of Anne Lister, an out, masculine-of-center lesbian in 19th century England, who kept a very detailed–and explicit–diary. I saw the first episode recently, and thought it was excellent.

There are many more documentaries I could list here!

Like Brother Outsider: The Life and Times of Bayard Rustin about the Civil Rights Movement leader; The Celluloid Closet about queerness in Hollywood; Howto Survive a Plague about the AIDS epidemic; Paris is Burning about the queer black ball scene in New York City in the 1980s; The State of Marriage about the struggle for marriage equality in Vermont;  We’ve Been Around, a series of documentary short films celebrating the lives of trans* pioneers; Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America; and on and on.

If you have recommendations for documentaries or books, let me know (or post them in the discussion forum).
Don’t forget that you should be integrating a discussion of both the lecture AND the reading in your discussion post. And be specific in your references, the way a historian would. Bring in evidence to support your points. Always include in-text MLA citations and a Works Cited section to clearly indicate which sources you cited. And include your word count at the end of your post.

Remember also that you need to cite all required content (lectures and reading), and that without references to the reading you may not receive higher than a ‘C’ on your discussion post.

Discussion Forum:

There are two questions this week:

  1. What did you find particularly exciting, interesting, or challenging about the assigned content this week? 
  2. According to your understanding of the reading by Leslie J. Solinger, what was the most important and essential context for understanding why the Supreme Court made its decision in Roe v. Wade (1973)?

Cite all of the required course content in your post. Include in-text MLA citations, a works cited section, and a word count for your post and replies.

Your initial discussion post should be at least 250 words, you should answer all questions, and your responses to the discussion should be thoughtful and not too brief — i.e. “me too” and “I agree” do not suffice as adequate responses. Your responses should be at minimum 50 words. Make sure to advance the conversation, most typically by adding something new (personal reference point, critique, something from the lecture or reading, etc.).
