Giving Voice to Emerging Science and Theory for Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual People of Color

Giving Voice to Emerging Science and Theory for Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual People of Color


Lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) people of color may experience multiple layers of oppression, as they often not only contend with the negative societal reactions to their sexual orientation but also may experience racial prejudice, limited economic resources, and limited acceptance within their own cultural community. Despite the range of psychosocial issues that may be encountered by this population, and the need to understand factors that promote resiliency and well-being, the empirical psychological literature has virtually ignored LGB people of color.

Recommendations for increasing research with LGB people of color are offered.
