    1. Dawn Gregory

      This is a great book, that explores how different parts of the US view same sex relationships and marriages. Very colorful and detailed in timelines. Lists the year ballots supporting gay rights and relationships. How states voted on a variety of propositions and the year as well. Found it to be very educational to see how states are becoming more open to gay relationships and marriage. In compliance with FTC guidelines, I received the book for free through First Reads.

      I won this book. It covers just about every legal aspect I can think of plus colorful charts. It's a good teaching book and for anyone fighting for gay rights.

      Not a bad book, but it's really, really short and will need to be updated frequently, so this resource might work better as a website than a book.
