Policy Issues Affecting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Families

Usually delivers within 2 weeks.


Policy Issues Affecting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Families brings together an extraordinary amount of material in one volume, uncovering the discrimination against the LGBT community and the legally - and morally - indefensible lack of equal protection for these individuals and their families. Sean Cahill and Sarah Tobias convincingly argue that equal rights for the LGBT community are more than simply a matter of fairness or common sense; they are logically and legally necessary for a just society that protects all its members alike. ""Policy Issues'"" six chapters comprehensively address the issues of who LGBT families are and their policy needs; legal protections for families and children; the intellectual history of family; and recent political history as it pertains to the struggle for partner recognition and the resulting right-wing backlash. With same-sex marriage much in the news recently, and attempts by conservative groups to turn back the clock on LGBT rights, ""Policy Issues"" adds a timely and necessary voice to the debate on what is arguably one of the most divisive and misunderstood social issues of our time.
