History of the gay rights movement

Associated Press just put out a longish article about how the gay rights movement progressed from the fifties until the present day. It's quite good and mentions a few of the heroes of the movement. Naturally, five pages can't tell the entire story -- but I assume other papers will pick it up, and that's a good thing because the article is entirely positive.

Tiny excerpt:
"There are kids coming out in high school now, being accepted by their classmates," he said. "Parents, relatives, friends are seeing the people they love come out. It's very hard to discriminate against someone you love."
It's our time. No one can doubt this.
