Promotional Information

The landscape of gay and lesbian rights is vastly different than it was just a few years ago. While the issue remains highly charged, surveys indicate that the public is increasingly supportive of same-sex relationships. All but three states have adopted laws against hate crimes based on sexual orientation and nearly 98 percent of large corporations have added sexual orientation to their nondiscrimination policies.

"As a whole, Gay and Lesbian Rights serves as a basic introduction to a significant social movement, and the bibliographies for the first three chapters can lead readers to more in-depth information." - ARBAonline
"As recent ballot measures on same-sex marriage show, gay and lesbian rights continue to be a controversial in the U.S. This wide-ranging guide to current issues affecting lesbian and gay people not only covers marriage, but also deals with housing and employment discrimination, hate crimes, military service, and adoption. An introductory section gives an overview of the history of the lesbian and gay struggle for civil rights, and other sections list organizations involved with gay and lesbian rights (most of them supportive) and provide resources for further information on the topics covered in the book. Of less obvious utility are a chronology of the legal struggle for lesbian and gay rights and a section of somewhat arbitrarily selected biographies of important figures in the gay and lesbian rights movement." - Reference & Research Book News
"...for a current, single-volume overview of LGBT legislation, legal rights, and policy, this work will suffice." - School Library Journal
"The second edition of Gay and Lesbian Rights: A Reference Handbook is an excellent reference book, well worth adding to a library's collection." - Feminist Collections
