LGBTQ people have been the objects of intolerance, hatred, and discrimination for centuries. Although society has become more accepting of LGBTQ people in recent years, they still face bias in almost every aspect of their lives. This book examines what bias looks like, how widespread it is, how it affects real people, and efforts to address it.
