New LGBT Health journal launching in 2013
Date:1/28/2013

stands for a distinct population with unique health vulnerabilities and concerns. Furthermore, the needs of each population are uniquely impacted by factors such as age, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geographical region, and the stigma that continues to be associated with sexual or gender minority status.

LGBT Health will promote optimal healthcare for millions of sexual and gender minority persons worldwide by employing a specific focus on their health concerns, while maintaining the breadth needed to fully encompass the relevant biological, psychological, and social facets. LGBT research has been hampered by a lack of funding opportunities and barriers to disclosure of sexual or gender minority status due to stigma and fear of discrimination in the healthcare setting. This promising new Journal will promote greater awareness; encourage further research; improve treatment options, patient care, and outcomes; and foster increased funding in this critical field.

Editor-in-Chief Byne has gathered a distinguished multidisciplinary editorial board of internationally recognized experts with established track records in LGBT health including Bobbie A. Berkowitz, PhD, RN, Columbia University School of Nursing and Senior Vice President of the Columbia University Medical Center; Judith Bradford, PhD, The Fenway Institute (TFI); Demetre Daskalakis, MD, NYU and Gay Men's Health Crisis; Griet De Cuypere, MD, PhD, University Hospital Ghent, Belgium; Annelou de Vries, MD, PhD, VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam; Brian de Vries, PhD, San Francisco State University; Jack Drescher, MD, President, the Group for Advancement of Psychiatry; A. Evan Eyler, MD, MPH, University of Vermont College of Medicine; Louis Gooren, PhD, VU University Medical Center Amsterdam; Robert Garofalo, MD, MPH, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine; Gregory M. Herek, PhD, University of California, Davis; Michael Kauth, PhD and Jillian Shipherd, PhD, LGBT
