New Internationalist books and publications

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 colors 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.
