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

By David Deschamps and Bennett L Singer, 2017

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.
