Is there a gay gene? Do we have the right to operate on hermaphrodite children? Gay, straight, bisexual, transsexualthe world is changing for sexual minorities. In some countries, the battle for sexual equality is bearing fruit in non-discriminatory legislation; in many others, gay people risk long prison sentences or even, as in Saudi Arabia or Iran, the death penalty. The No-Nonsense Guide to Sexual Diversity surveys the hidden history and geography of sexually unconventional behavior. And it explores the reasons behind the war being waged against sexual non-conformists by religious fundamentalists, be they Christian, Muslim or Hindu. This guide also contains an indispensable country-by-country survey of the laws affecting sexual minorities.
