The world is changing and especially so for sexual minorities – for bisexual, gays 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 colors of the sexual rainbow, and reveals the hidden histories 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.

The book is both a historical and cross-cultural account and an intervention in contemporary debates. Jeffrey Weeks, Professor of Sociology, South Bank University, U.K.
„What a wonderful book! [It] offers a remkably comprehensive, albeit whirlwind, tour of sex beyond heterosexuality and gender beyond male and female.“ Diva, London
