Includes personal essays by writers that represent a diverse range of the LGBTQ community.
This anthology discusses the many issues faced by the LGBTQ community that are not addressed by the mainstream discourse surrounding marriage equality.
Unlike many similar titles, this anthology raises the issue of how decades of oppression have lead the LGBTQ community to define relationships in a way entirely separate from mainstream culture, and the fact that marriage equality may redefine these structures in negative ways.
As the movement for marriage equality continues to gain momentum, this discussion of overlooked LGBTQ rights and issues is timely.
Comparable titles demonstrate that the market for this book is trending upward.
This will be the first anthology to give light to the issues outside of the marriage equality movement, and seeks to expand the limited language used to discuss the rights of the LGBTQ community.
