Even by today's standards, nineteenth-century British poet Lord Byron led a wild life. In between his passionate and public love affairs with both men and women, his alleged dalliance with his half-sister, his courageous battlefield exploits in the Greek War of Independence, and his untimely death from a fatal illness at the age of 36, he managed to produce some of the most memorable poetry ever written in the English language. This biography presents a comprehensive look at Byron's life.

"The legacy of a long-standing cultural war against LGBT people, as well as rampant discrimination, is reflected in many areas. As LGBT policies evolve and take shape, and new voices of the movement emerge, these issues can be shown to pervade a number of policy areas including mental and physical healthcare, race, poverty and homelessness, religion, immigration, senior issues, the role of family in the LGBT community, bisexuality and transgender issues, the connection between economics and homicides/hate crimes, education, business, and work force diversity. A collection of fascinating contemporary perspectives, this book explores the breadth and depth of the many 'divides' -- socioeconomic, race, age, healthcare, immigration, education, and income -- including those that intersect within the LGBT community. For any reader who really wants to know about the current future development of the LGBT community, this is an invaluable book"--
