- The book is one of the results of the project "Atviri ir Saug?s Darbe.lt". The book presents different articles on homophobia and the social divide of homosexual persons and the experience of discrimination, written by different Lithuanian and foreign authors after the conference “Homophobia and Discrimination of Lesbians and Gays in an Enlarged Europe: Challenges of Social Inclusion”, arranged at Vytautas Magnus University in October 2006, which was the first ever academic conference in a Lithuanian university, dedicated exceptionally to the subjects of gays and lesbians and which convoked an international community of scientists to discuss the homophobia and the ways of overcoming it. The book analyzes the social divide of homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals in Lithuania and Hungary, the issues of sexual and gender diversity in Finnish schools and labour environment and discrimination of gay, lesbian and transsexual persons at work in Lithuania and in Canada. The book also presents the issues of sexuality, manhood and homophobia in Latvia, Poland and Slovenia, the pros and cons in regard to the matrimony (partnership) between persons of the same sex are examined. The last chapter presents an article on heteronormativity in the educational system when preparing teachers, written by a Swedish scientist. The book was funded by the EQUAL programme of the European Union and the Government of the Republic of Lithuania.
