From Wrongs to Rights: 1973 to 1999 Public Opinion on Gay and Lesbian Americans Moves Toward Equality

Securing accurate, factual, well-researched data on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities remains one of the biggest challenges facing the advocacy movement and policy makers. This 40-page report marks an important step to deliver such data. From Wrongs to Rights collects and analyzes data from a wide range of public opinion polls done over a more than twenty year period.

Alan Yang offers a balanced perspective on trends in public opinion toward lesbians and gay men over time. His original analysis of publicly available data reveals what has been gained by the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender movement for equality and what aspects of public opinion still remain in flux.

LGBT is short for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender.
