“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 is filled with a plethora of information. With how much society has grown to accept people of all sexualities and genders, this book is essential for many types of people. Topics range from discrimination in the work place to education and from immigration to criminal justice. There’s even accounts of how much criticism the USA has gotten from countries who sentence same sex couples to death. I particularly was interested in the changed regulations for gay men regarding giving blood as well as President Barack Obama’s role in the new decision.
For the journalist, the activist, the advocate, the lawyer or the reader, LGBTQ Stats is filled to the brim with statistics and information, in just over 200 pages.
Thank you to Edelweiss for providing me with a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.
