USA: Stonewalled - still demanding respect. Police abuses against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the USA
The efforts of countless campaigners have ensured that recognition of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the USA has made significant progress over recent decades. However, as this report shows, LGBT people in the USA remain at risk of gender-based violence, sometimes amounting to torture and ill-treatment. This report summarizes the main findings of extensive research into abuses against LGBT individuals in the USA. It also outlines some key measures which could help stop these abuses and which form the focus of Amnesty International's work to promote and defend LGBT human rights in the USA and worldwide.
