Documents of the LGBT Movement: Eyewitness to History
2018 / May

Writer.

While most would think of the modern Gay Rights Movement as beginning in the 1960s, in reality, the issue of nonheterosexual human behavior within society and the campaign to achieve equality and acceptance have existed far earlier. Beginning with the First People in the Americas and their acceptance of tribal members who did not conform to gender and sexual binary roles, to the expansion west and establishment of the United States as a Republic, to the contentious struggles for equality in the 20th and 21st centuries, this reference traces the development of the Gay Rights Movement through the examination of primary source materials related to the incremental changes toward making America safe for all people.

/Lesbian,%20Gay,%20Bisexual,%20and%20Transgender%20Americans%20at%20Risk
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Americans at Risk
2018 / Feb

Editor and writer for 3-volume reference set on LGBT issues.

In June of 2015, the United State Supreme Court issued an opinion that directly impacted the lives of many LGBT Americans: in Obergefell v. Hodges, the court required all states to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions. While many activists consider this a major achievement, LGBT individuals still face a number of pressing issues. In Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Americans at Risk, editor Chuck Stewart and a carefully selected group of contributors unravel these far-reaching concerns. The book is a cutting-edge resource for academics, activists, scholars, students, and lay people who are interested in examining LGBT social and political movements as well as the public policy progress and setbacks of recent years. Three volumes of essays by experts in a variety of fields delve deeply into primary sources to tackle important topics such as transgender adolescents, alcohol and drug abuse, and the massacre at Pulse gay nightclub, along with dozens of others. Organized by life stages, this comprehensive work sheds light on concerns and controversies affecting youth, adults, and seniors connected to the LGBT community.

/Proud%20Heritage
Proud Heritage
2014

Editor and writer for 3-volume reference set on LGBT culture, politics, and history in the United States.

With the social, religious, and political stigmas attached to alternative lifestyles throughout history, most homosexuals, bisexuals, and transgender people lived covertly for much of, if not all of, their lives. Likewise, the narrative of our country excludes the contributions, struggles, and historical achievements of this group. This revealing, chronologically arranged reference work uncovers the rich story of the LGBT community in the United States and discusses the politics, culture, and issues affecting it since the early 17th century.

Author Chuck Stewart traces the evolution of LGBT issues as part of our nation’s shared cultural past and modern-day experience. Volume 1 focuses on the origins of the movement with the founding of Jamestown in 1607 through the 1970s and the beginning of gay rights activism in the United States. Volume 2 spans the 1980s and the AIDs pandemic through the present-day issues of marriage equality. Volume 3 gives a concise review of this society in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

The clear, accessible prose is appropriate for high school student research on up. The material is especially needed in a cultural climate that increasingly supports and requires information about LGBT populations. The content is useful for a paper on a hot topic, health classes, discussion groups, and gay-straight alliance groups.

  • Bricks—The Terror of Treblinka  (2019)
    Authors: Chuck Stewart and Wolfgang Klotz
    Genre — Horror
    Synopsis: At the end of World War II, most Nazi concentration camps were completely destroyed, and all evidence of their existence scraped from the ground. Treblinka was notorious for the number of people exterminated in the gas chambers and cremated in its ovens, yet its existence was completely erased. Think of the horror these bricks witnessed and the innocent souls they now possess!

    Bricks and other materials from the concentration camps were used for rebuilding Germany after the war. They were used in building, bridges, roads, and more. Bricks take place in 1983— fifty years after Hitler was named Chancellor of Germany at a small and isolated brick building that is used as a dance studio. Many strange happenings occur on the anniversary of Hitler’s rise to power that lead to a battle between good and evil with the dancers caught in the crossfire. The ghosts of tortured souls haunt the bricks; some seeking revenge and all seeking justice.

  • Singularity: How A.I. Became Sentient 
    What is it about biological systems that motivates them and aids in their evolution to greater complexity and, finally, self-awareness? The primary motivator for biological entities is the need to find and compete for food. It is from that competition for food that biological entities evolved multicellularity, mobility, aggression, collaboration, and more. However, food, as a motivator, is completely lacking with computers. We plug them in and they get all the electricity that they need. Gauges indicate the charge level but that does not indicate the computer is “hungry.” Computers do not need to compete for food. But autonomous-driving cars could change all of that. They need to recharge regularly. Although most will charge at home or work, some will use charging stations many times within their operational lifetime. As of 2020, Tesla installed thousands of charging stations across the U.S. and elsewhere. The author asked what would happen if an electric car was almost out of juice and faced a line-up of cars at a charging station. Would the car take initiative and push its way to the front? How would that happen? How does that motivation come to being? Under what circumstances would an electric car become self-aware and sentient? And would that influence other A.I. systems?

    “Singularity" explores the world of 2050 and the factors that influence the development of consciousness in computers and robots. Although this is a science-fiction novel, it is based on science fact and is a look into the not-so-distance future Los Angeles and the world.
    Audience: Adults; there is explicit gay male sex throughout the story.

  • Marie’s Nutcracker
