520    "Violence against lesbians and gay men has increasingly 
       captured media and scholarly attention. But these reports 
       tend to focus on one segment of the LGBT community--white,
       middle class men--and largely ignore that part of the 
       community that arguably suffers a larger share of the 
       violence--racial minorities, the poor, and women. In 
       Violence against Queer People, sociologist Doug Meyer 
       offers the first investigation of anti-queer violence that
       focuses on the role played by race, class, and gender. 
       Drawing on interviews with forty-seven victims of violence,
       Meyer shows that LGBT people encounter significantly 
       different forms of violence--and perceive that violence 
       quite differently--based on their race, class, and gender.
       His research highlights the extent to which other forms of
       discrimination--including racism and sexism--shape LGBT 
       people's experience of abuse. He reports, for instance, 
       that lesbian and transgender women often described violent
       incidents in which a sexual or a misogynistic component 
       was introduced, and that LGBT people of color sometimes 
       weren't sure if anti-queer violence was based solely on 
       their sexuality or whether racism or sexism had also 
       played a role. Meyer observes that given the many 
       differences in how anti-queer violence is experienced, the
       present media focus on white, middle-class victims greatly
       oversimplifies and distorts the nature of anti-queer 
       violence. In fact, attempts to reduce anti-queer violence 
       that ignore race, class, and gender run the risk of 
       helping only the most privileged gay subjects."--
