Summary
Issues explored in this title include the role of non-traditional same-sex families, and expanded protections for transgender people under the framework of civil rights. The acronym LGBTQ, standing for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer, is an acronym created to refer to a broad group of people, living around the world and coming from a wide variety of different creeds and cultures, whose behavior is seen as "nonconformist" with regard to mainstream concepts of gender and sexuality. For most of history, those who failed to conform with mainstream ideas about gender and sexuality were forced to hide their behavior or face social and legal penalties that could even include execution. Over time, LGBTQ people have fought for equal rights under the law and the right to express their sexuality or gender without reprisal. The primary issues in the United States surrounding LGBTQ individuals concern the degree to which individuals have the right to determine their own gender and sexual identity and whether other individuals have the right to discriminate against LGBTQ individuals based on their cultural, religious, or personal beliefs. - Publisher/Preface
