The book provides both a social work and an international perspective to a field typically dominated by US based public health research .”Ilan H. Meyer, UCLA School of Law“ An important contribution to the knowledge needed by those on social work services to understand the complex matrix not only of the persistent discrimination experienced by LGBT people but the health inequalities they encounter on their journeys through life.”Ruth Stark, MSc, CQSW, MBE, President International Federation of Social Workers “ Committed to health equity and human rights, this valuable book offers important theoretical and practical insights to improve LGBT wellbeing across the lifecourse, from early childhood to end-of-life care, and does so cognizant of commingled inequitable power relations involving sexuality, class, race/ethnicity, and gender, within and between nations.”Nancy Krieger, Professor of Social Epidemiology, Harvard School of Public Health ” This original book gives a much-needed focus on the role of social work in addressing LGBT health inequalities. It makes a vital and necessary contribution towards promoting equality for LGBT people.”
