Reviews

“This work and its two companion books on the Latinx and Black LGBT populations make important contributions that advance the fields of race, sexuality, social justice, and their intersections.” (Patricia Hill Collins, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland, USA, and Charles Phelps Taft Emeritus Professor, University of Cincinnati, USA)

“Ground-breaking in its scope, this report on Asian Pacific Islander LGBT people shatters stereotypes and presents intriguing insights into the lives and challenges of a large and diverse set of communities that still remain invisible to the mainstream.” (Urvashi Vaid, Managing Director of The Vaid Group, a social innovation and strategy firm that works on global and domestic projects, thevaidgroup.com)
