Data can be difficult to understand. Whether it’s attempting to analyse the numbers, unpacking the jargon or feeling overwhelmed with the general topic at hand, it makes sense why many of us might steer away from the stats. But, in his debut book, Queer Data: Using Gender, Sex and Sexuality Data for Action, Dr Kevin Guyan has been driven to bring the LGBTQ+ community closer to the abundance of data that surrounds them. Based in Scotland, the author hopes to convey an “accessible” book for “people to read and feel inspired”. Published under Bloomsbury, Guyan’s book boldly united figures and activism to empower readers of how data can shape the world around us.
Following the exciting release, GAY TIMES sat down with the author over Zoom to hear more about the book and his data-driven message to the LGBTQ+ community.
