Data has never mattered more. Our lives are increasingly shaped by it and how it is defined, collected and used. But who counts in the collection, analysis and application of data?

This important book is the first to look at queer data – defined as data relating to gender, sex, sexual orientation and trans identity/history.

The author shows us how current data practices reflect an incomplete account of LGBTQ lives and helps us understand how data biases are used to delegitimise the everyday experiences of queer people.

Guyan demonstrates why it is important to understand, collect and analyse queer data, the benefits and challenges involved in doing so, and how we might better use queer data in our work.

Arming us with the tools for action, this book shows how greater knowledge about queer identities is instrumental in informing decisions about resource allocation, changes to legislation, access to services, representation and visibility.

"A refreshingly clear and practical take which cuts through turbulent discourse and offers a new way of looking at fixing inequalities and responding to threats facing the LGBTQI+ community."
Emma Roddick, Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP)

"Committed to the project of changing the world for the better for Queer People, this book critically analyses the need to include LGBTQ people in policymaking. It's enormously readable, theoretically informed and supported by evidence."
Julie Fish, Director of the Centre for LGBTQ Research, De Montfort University, UK

"A unique, powerful call to action. Guyan boldly points out how queer data is ignored, 'straightwashed' or corrupted. It offers a way forward to engage with queer data to shape our own lived experiences. Highly recommended!"
Drew Dalton, Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Programme Leader MSc Inequality and Society, University of Sunderland, UK
