This is the 2016 edition of the popular series, The Gay Agenda. It includes all up to date information about how to achieve legal equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. Thoroughly updated and with 13 new chapters, if you have not yet read any of the Gay Agenda books, this is the time! If you have read the prior editions go directly to Part IV about what to do in 2016. Find answers to questions such as:

  • What are the most important actions you can take in 2016? (see ten actions in chapter 56). NEW!
  • What words did the Supreme Court use in the marriage decision when talking about LGBT people? (see chapter 17). NEW!
  • What arguments did the Supreme Court use about the role of religion in marriage? about the tradition of marriage being between a man and a woman? about states rights? about the effect on children? about having a vote on marriage? Check the Supreme Court answers (chapter 27). NEW!
  • How does the Supreme Court view the evolution of our rights, on their own words? (chapter 40). NEW!
  • What are the 14 strategies you can pursue as a donor (see chapter 63)
  • In how many states there is full equality for LGBT people? (see chapter 60)
  • Isn't it true that "politics is the art of the possible"? (see chapter 47)
  • What's missing for full equality in your state? (see chapters 60 and 61)
  • What are some of the creative actions to foster LGBT equality? (see chapter 65)
  • How can you be more effective as an activist? (see chapter 66)
  • Is it there a full declaration of principles for achieving full equality? (see chapter 34)

Many more topics are addressed. Check the table of contents below. This book is updated yearly and it is divided into four parts:

  • Part I describes what LGBT means and the arguments used to deny equal treatment under the law to this group of people.
  • Part II shows what the gay agenda is in detail, including the goals to be achieved.
  • Part III describes the different paths available to achieve equality.
  • Part IV details specific actions you can take in 2016 to achieve legal equality for the LGBT community.
  • Finally, the epilogue describes the ultimate goal, beyond legal equality.



The book has three main characteristics:

  • Very comprehensive guide to LGBT equality
  • Very easy to read (283 pages divided into 68 short, very-focused chapters)
  • Directed to a wide audience: activists, LGBT people, allies, and people who can be swayed by the arguments the opposition is using about freedom of religion, family values, etc
