Synopsis

Toward Acceptance is a systematic study of the complex issues facing gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered persons on college campuses. Organized into five distinct sections, Toward Acceptance builds on the content included in Evans and Wall's previous book, Beyond Tolerance: Gays, Lesbians, and Bisexuals on Campus (American College Personnel Association, 1993). The editors begin with an overview of the current research dealing with gay, lesbian and bisexual student issues and then move into a discussion of the organizations promoting awareness and counseling. The latter portion of the book focuses on diversity among the gay and lesbian community and concludes with an examination of how student affairs professionals can continue to be proactive in the area of sexual orientation awareness and support. Complete with a comprehensive collection of resources, Toward Acceptance is an important tool in the greater awareness of problems within the gay and lesbian college community. Co-published with American College Personnel Association.
