Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are frequently denied equal rights in America. LGBT people face discrimination as employees, students, adoptive parents, spouses, and consumers, and they have been targeted in violent hate crimes. This book examines what this discrimination entails, how it is manifested, how widespread it is, how it affects real people, and efforts to address it.
