Over 30 landmark legal cases, from 1973 to 2023, that mark the most impactful and significant milestones in LGBTQ history.

Lambda Legal, the pioneering non-profit legal organization, is opening its archives for the first time to create a book commemorating their 50th anniversary.

The most important, 'game-changing' legal cases for the civil rights of the LGBTQ community are presented here alongside a collection of curated archival material and historical images, chronicling the history and vital mission of the organization to advocate for the lives of LGBTQ people and people living with HIV.

Through lively, detailed text and fascinating historical and contemporary images, including rarely seen and never-published images from the Lambda Legal's photo archive, dating back 50 years, to the beginning of the organization's history, this is the first book to celebrate and commemorate the societal impact of Lambda Legal's landmark strides for the civil rights of the LGBTQ community.

Founded four years after the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City in 1973, Lambda Legal is the oldest legal organization in the USA dedicated to achieving full equality for lesbian and gay people. With unprecedented success, this trailblazing national civil-rights group has offices in six locations around the country and continues to improve lives for a diverse community of LGBTQ people, who, fifty years ago, were penalized or barely recognized under the law.
