No Nonsense Guide to Sexual Diversity
The treatment of sexual minorities - whether lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, varies significantly in different parts of the world. In some countries equal rights have been achieved and progress is being made against discrimination; in others being gay still incurs the death penalty. This No-Nonsense Guide examines all the colours of the sexual rainbow, unearths hidden histories and looks at contributions from medicine and science.
It includes a unique global survey of laws that affect LGBT people:
1. Global overview
2. The revolution's here!
3. Hidden history
5. The politics of sexual control
10. Appendix: A world survey of sexual minorities and the law
