Many examinations of the LGBTQ community in the past have been limited to the experiences of white people, but this series is notable for its inclusion of people of color in anecdotes, photos, and case studies. . . . A student who reads all six will be very well served and armed with so much relevant and up-to-date information on many rapidly-evolving social topics. Recommended.
