Scholarly articles from the relevant perspectives will be solicited, including population studies; basic, translational, and health services research; best practices and policies; professional training and education; and cultural competence in the delivery of healthcare to members of sexual and gender minorities from childhood through the older adult years.
Specific content areas will include healthcare disparities, barriers to healthcare, reproductive health and assisted reproduction, parenting and family concerns, physical and mental well-being, and the health and preventive services appropriate to members of each sexual or gender minority population group. Since the majority of LGBT studies to date have focused on minority communities defined by sexual orientation, research on behalf of populations defined by gender identity and gender variance will be particularly welcomed.
