LGBTQ STATS : Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer People by the Numbers
by Bennett Singer and David DesChamps and Jennifer Finney Boylan




Overview -
Winner of the 2018 American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book Award

An essential handbook of myth-busting facts and figures about the real lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people

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.
