LGBTQ Stats: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer People by the Numbers

by David Deschamps and Bennett Singer - £13.99  The New Press (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781620972441 | ISBN 10: 1620972441

An essential handbook of myth-busting facts and figures about the real lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people.
 
A fully revised and expanded edition of the book hailed by gay-rights pioneer Harry Hay as “truly astonishing... a captivating compendium.”
 
Twenty years ago it was impossible to imagine the president of the United States embracing same-sex marriage or Bruce Jenner transitioning to Caitlyn Jenner, an open transgender woman.
 
LGBTQ Stats chronicles the ongoing LGBTQ revolution, providing the critical statistics, and draws upon and synthesizes newly collected data. Deschamps and Singer—whose previous books and films on LGBTQ topics have won numerous awards and found audiences around the globe — provide chapters on family and marriage, workplace discrimination, education, youth, criminal justice, and immigration, as well as evolving policies and laws affecting LGBTQ communities. A chapter on LGBTQ life around the globe contrasts the dramatic progress for LGBTQ people in the United States with violent backlash in countries such as Russia, Iran, and Nigeria, which have discriminatory laws that make same-sex activity punishable by prison or death.
 
A lively, accessible, and eye-opening snapshot, LGBTQ Stats offers an invaluable resource for activists, journalists, lawmakers, and general readers who want the facts and figures on LGBTQ lives in the twenty-first century.
