Remember when gay marriage was the easiest way to inflame an otherwise mild electorate? This volume demonstrates, through speeches, interviews, and commentary, the encouraging story of American acceptance of gay marriage and the roles that politicians--gay and straight--have played in that history. This movement began with individuals telling the truth about who they are to a world that doesn't accept them. From Supervisor Harvey Milk articulating in 1978 why gay people in all fields must be out and visible; to Governor Andrew Cuomo blinking back tears as he discussed his pride in making gay marriage a reality in New York in 2011; to President Obama's unprecedented support and the courage of many other American politicians-We Do! triumphantly chronicles this recent chapter of our history.

What's my name fool is a book that ALL sports fans need to read, Dave Zirin pulls no punches in this book and shows that the powers that be need to stop shoving the issues such as race and homosexuality in sports under the bed as non-issues and assume sports is ok and that these topics do not exist.
