I wanted to post this in the thread, but it was too off-topic.
he Civil Rights Movement was a period of time when multiple minorities began to rise up, not just African Americans. This is when Gay Rights really gained momentum, however the Gay Rights movement started after World War 2. The Stonewall Riots occured during the Civil Rights Movements. Asian Americans, Mexican Americans, Native American, all fought for rights, and feminism grew among middle class women.
