This No-Nonsense Guide to Sexual Diversity is one of the most wide-ranging and comprehensive accounts of alternative sexualities: its global reach and compassionate understanding make it unique.

The world is changing and especially so for sexual minorities - for lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender people. In some countries hard-won battles for equality are bearing fruit in non-discrimination legislation. In others being gay incurs the death penalty.

This No-Nonsense Guide demystifies the colours of the sexual rainbow, and reveals the hidden history of LGBT people, cross-dressers and eunuchs across the world and through time. It traces the often strange search for the scientific 'source' of homosexuality; the history of homophobia; the role that religion has played and the politics of sexual control.

In addition to finding out about the rich, diverse reality you can keep up with the laws that affect sexual minorities with the unique, country-by-country, global survey.

Diagrams, charts and graphs used throughout to illustrate key information.
