New Book: Matt Baume “Defining Marriage”

New Book: Matt Baume “Defining Marriage”

Matt Baume, who for years kept LGBTs and their allies up to date on the state of marriage equality with his weekly Marriage News Watch videos, shares the good news that he has published an e-book titled Defining Marriage.

From the description on Amazon:

Defining Marriage traces the decades-long evolution of marriage through the personal stories of those who lived through it. Writer Matt Baume provides an intimate glimpse into the private lives of those who dreamed of marriage in the 1970s, the survivors of the 1980s, the audacious pioneers of the 1990s, the tireless soldiers of the 2000s, and the champions who won marriage today.

Along the way, he explores the individual stories of the people who participated in this revolution, examines what marriage has become, and shows with vivid, compelling personal narratives how the act of defining marriage forever changed the lives and loves of the people who fought to define the institution. As the journey to equality unfolds over the years, Baume finds himself unexpectedly evaluating his own self-contradictory life as a marriage activist with no plans to marry his longtime partner.

From decades past to this moment in history, from halls of power to private bedrooms, from the political to the personal, Defining Marriage is the story of how people from all walks of life fought to change marriage — and how fighting for marriage, in turn, changed them.

You can download the book right now from Amazon, and Baume is making the tome free for this first week of availability.
