By Veronica Dedow on March 8, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book was, I thought, well researched and very informative. I wish my university in South Texas had an lgbt class being taught. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to know the history and trends of how the lgbt community is treated and perceived. On the other hand, I would have liked to hear more about bisexuals and transgendered folks. I'd say 90-95% of the book was about lesbians and gays. I understand that sometimes the research just isn't there but when I see a book touted as lgbt, I expect to see all that that acronym encompasses. Some surface issues I had: towards the end of the book, I saw some spelling mistakes. Just bothersome, really. There's a school in south Texas that is discussed that is misnamed. It should be Flour Bluff--believe me, I'm from around there. That was just a really bad mistake, in my opinion. Otherwise, as stated, I found this book to be very educational and would highly recommend it!

I had to find a resource for my project/paper that is due in my ENG 103 class. I had to have one book as a source. This is a little hard to follow but has some good information in it.
