"The legacy of a long-standing cultural war against LGBT people, as well as rampant discrimination, is reflected in many areas. As LGBT policies evolve and take shape, and new voices of the movement emerge, these issues can be shown to pervade a number of policy areas including mental and physical healthcare, race, poverty and homelessness, religion, immigration, senior issues, the role of family in the LGBT community, bisexuality and transgender issues, the connection between economics and homicides/hate crimes, education, business, and work force diversity. A collection of fascinating contemporary perspectives, this book explores the breadth and depth of the many 'divides' -- socioeconomic, race, age, healthcare, immigration, education, and income -- including those that intersect within the LGBT community. For any reader who really wants to know about the current future development of the LGBT community, this is an invaluable book"-- Back cover.
