This powerful book portrays the trauma of anti-gay violence and will stimulate thought, research and action on the problem.

Developed from a special issue of the Journal of Interpersonal Violence, it presents an overview of the problem, discusses the context of anti-gay violence, focuses on both victims and perpetrators and concludes with coverage of a variety of community responses across the nation. Topics covered include the social psychology of bigotry, treatment and service interventions and mental health consequences. Each section opens with a survivor's actual story - first person accounts - to give the reader insight into the reality of this serious social problem.
