Annotation: Informed by intersectionality theory and queer theory, LGBT+ Issues in the United States: An Anthology helps students develop a deeper understanding of how homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia, when compounded by racism, classism, ableism, or sexism, can result in the disempowerment of the LGBTQIA community in the United States.
The anthology features four distinct parts. The readings in Part I feature a social justice perspective, exposing students to discussions about the treatment of intersex and transgender individuals, inclusivity in school environments, trans rights, and homophobia and heterosexism.
In Part II, students learn about secondary marginalization through selections that explore homophobia in black communities, the idea of the "other," and how same-sex marriage is addressed in the United States census.
Part III features readings that examine the impact of geography, community, religion, and family on identity and the process of coming out.
The final part provides students with selections on lesbian, transgender, and homosexual identity and experience.
A timely anthology that gives voice to the realities of the LGBTQIA community, LGBT+ Issues in the United States is well suited for courses in gender and sexuality, human relations, and social justice.
