Questions related to LGBT
Hi! We are looking for collaborators and co-authors for a proposed multi-country on "Nursing Students' Knowledge and Attitudes of LGBT Health Concerns Survey" wiith Dr. Judy Cornelius of the The University of North Carolina. For those interested, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: LGBT Health Concerns Survey Collaborator. Thank you.
as a sexualities researcher, I am faced with a difficult question regarding the complex dynamics between seeking ways in which evidence-based science on human sexual orientation (e.g. on the normalcy of homo-/bi-sexuality, understanding of unchangeability and immutability in the domain of attractions; proven harmful effects of sexual orientation change efforts - SOCE; minority stress and stigma influence on LGBT+ people's well-being, etc.) collide with the prevalent doctrines perpetuated by various Churches (e.g. by Catholic Church, etc.). For example, in most of the Catholic discussions or written sources, I continue to see distinguishing between one's sexual orientation (as a trait) and the seeming (and seen as sinful) choice of acting upon this "drive" or "impulse".
By making this distinction, one is faced with a view in which human (homo/bi)sexuality is represented as (a) suppressible and (b) possibly changeable.
Here, I would like to ask you, fellow scholars, if you have some resources, references, results of your research as well as consequent suggestions in which it may be possible to find fruitful grounds for progressive discussion with a capacity for reconciling this schism between scientific evidence on (a) understanding of sexuality as human natural physiological need similar to hunger or thirst (Maslow 1987 Motivation and Personality), and (b) unchangeability of sexual orientation and harmful practices of SOCE which is backed by several position statements by respected scientific communities like World Psychiatric Association (Bhugra, D., Eckstrand, K., Levounis, P., Kar, A., & Javate, K. R. (2016). WPA Position Statement on Gender Identity and Same-Sex Orientation, Attraction and Behaviours. World psychiatry: official journal of the World Psychiatric Association (WPA), 15(3), 299–300. https://doi.org/10.1002/wps.20340)
In this view, the religious (normative, moral) requirement of suppression or alteration of someone's sexual orientation and proscribed partner selection effectively restricting homo/bisexual individuals' potentials for forming and sustaining long-term relationships (and in this view acting upon their physiological desires) poses a substantial barrier to their well-being as well. The significance of these questions surpass individuals or interindividual psychology, they foray into law, religious freedoms, bioethics and so much more.
I am sure that many have asked themselves similar questions, so perhaps this discussion will also benefit other scholars.
The paper will also look into teachers willingness to normalize LBGT identities!
I'm working on developing guidelines to support LGBTQ parents, and I need some research evidence to base this on.
For same sex couples, or where there are barriers to the gestational parent breastfeeding, we are sometimes asked for advice and support for inducing lactation in the parent who is not giving birth.
Can anyone direct me towards any hospital guidelines, professional association guidelines, research papers or other evidence or protocol which I can base this on.
Thank you for your thoughts.
I'm looking for best options for asking the gender question in a survey. The survey is part of a training evaluation, which is not specifically related to gender/sex/orientation/etc. issues. BAsically, its just one of a series of brief demographic questions to ensure we've captured those variables in our evaluation. When I search for options, I am mainly coming across research that is concerned with analysing impacts related to sexual or gender minority populations. Our purpose is just to make sure we are being inclusive by not simply asking the question in the binary way, which is limiting. Any insight you can provide would be much appreciated!
I am researching LGBTQIA+ ageing and the unique experiences and challenges that people face. Any recommendations on insightful publications on these topics would be most welcome?
I am also interested in connecting with music therapists or psychotherpaists who may have worked with LGBTQIA+ older adults or LGBTQIA+ individuals who have engaged in music therapy.
I apologize in advance if I come across as ignorant. I am trying my best to educate myself on LGBTQI+ community and how to write them in academic writing.
I have a sample of X participants in a qualitative study. One of them identifies as a transwoman. 3 belonged to other sexual or gender minorities. I don't want to end up being insensitive in my writing. Of course, a transgender woman is a woman. What I am having trouble with is that - are the terms "male" and "female" assumed to be cisgendered?
Should I mentioned that: Y number of participants were cisgendered: M males and N females. And Z participants were from gender minorities (and include trans participants in the second sentence?).
Or should I take the route of M males and N females (where trans participant is included). and Z participants were from gender minorities.
It took me some time to put forward this question because I feel like I am not able to frame it properly. So feel free to ask if you need clarifications from my side.
Over the last several decades, the increasing global attention to issues of human rights for
lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people and other sexual minorities has focused on the intrinsic value of those rights from a social, cultural, and ethical perspective. Recognizing those rights represents a commitment to equality for a stigmatized group of people and to guaranteeing universal freedoms for those individuals. Enacting those rights to achieve equality means working to end discrimination and violence against LGBT people. The need for attention is clear: human rights agencies and scholars from around the world have documented violations of human rights, finding discrimination, family rejection, violence, imprisonment, and other forms of exclusion faced by LGBT people in every country studied.
I am looking for literature on childfree / childless lesbian, bisexual and queer women by choice, specifically on reasons and motivations for being childfree. I was wondering if anyone could recommend some research on this topic.
Thanks for you help.
I am looking to find contemporary (2005 and onward) LGBTQ+ literature/texts (novels, poems, digital literature, correspondence, social media writers) by Ecuadorian writers (preferably LGBTQ+ too, but not a must), and/or academic articles that deal with the topic. Aside from a wikipedia page, I was not able to retrieve a lot of information. Has anybody here worked on this topic in the past?
Busco literatura/textos contemporáneos (2005 y adelante) escritotos por escritor@s ecuatorian@s -- que sean novelas, poemas, literatura digital, cartas, literatura en las redes sociales...). También busco artículos académicos que trabajan el tema de la literatura LGBTQ+ en el Ecuador de hoy en día. No encontré mucha información a parte de un sitio wikipedia. ?Alguién ha investigado esa temática y podría decirme por dónde empezar?
I am conducting a study with 2 dependent variables (depression and anxiety) and 2 independent variables (heterosexual and LGB) but I am unsure of what the best analysis to use is. I want to see the effect that the controlled variable has on scores of depression and anxiety in heterosexual people and LGB people and then see whether these scores are higher or lower for heterosexual and LGB people. Any help would be much appreciated!
The twenty first century has witnessed an emergence of multiple of identities egging upon different forces of the time. It has also come across the proliferation of the idea of cultural diversity as globalization, communications, market, migration and the increased diversification of identity patterns have emerged within traditionally homogeneous groups. While cultural diversity points towards the existence of several cultures that are dissimilar, heterogeneous and often incommensurable the multiculturalism promotes the acceptance of cultural diversity by encouraging the recognition of minorities by the society and its institutions. ‘Multiculturalism’ now takes into its fold not only the disadvantaged and marginalized groups like minorities and tribals but also the immigrants who may come under ethnic, religious minorities as well as minority nations and indigenous peoples and communities like LGBT, disabled, etc., After 9/11 and certain terrorist acts in Europe there has been a shift in thinking that considers the existence of immigrants incompatible with the European member cultures and history.
The recent upsurge of radicalism and nationalism in liberal multicultural democracies usher in the era of community confrontations as was witnessed by Europe in late nineteenth century and Asia in mid-twentieth century. The secular credentials are on the wane in many states known for their multicultural values and egalitarian orders and the politics of dominance and discrimination is on the rise. The statements of many European leaders from Germany, France Denmark about non-utility of multicultural model has alarmed the immigrant populations and minorities alike. The state behavior has transformed from community welfare to individual interests. Doesn't it needs a quick attention and reversal?
I am an undergrad writing a research paper about transmasculine and masculine lesbian identity in Thailand. Specifically, I am looking for new, accessible, English texts about tom and tom gay people, any surgeries or hormonal intervention, or self-perceptions of these groups; I will attach my references thus far. Not listed is Jai Arun Ravine's research/documentary, of which I am aware, but was unable to attain a copy of either. My focus is Thailand simply due to the wealth of information available and Megan Sinnott's detailed study of toms and dees, but any information about surrounding cultures is also appreciated. Formal academic research is preferred, but if anyone has links to websites or helpful books, etc, those are also welcome.
Thank you for reading!
I was recently asked by local science museum to help organize an exhibit to highlight LGBTQ++ people who've made significant contributions to science and tech. I've started making a list off the top of my head: Magnus Hirschfeld, Alan Turing, Ben Barres, Lynn Conway, Anne Fausto-Sterling, Bruce Bagemihl, Joan Roughgarden, etc. etc.
You see the pattern, every single one of those ppl is a white person. Putting aside the obvious ways making a list like this is a troubled task in and of itself (Who could have made it as an out LGBT POC in sci//tech 20, 50, 60 years ago... how are we defining "significant contribution," who's contributions are being erased by claiming one person as the "pioneer" of something) I'm not having any luck googling for LGBT POC in science and tech... I either come up with advocacy groups trying to get more LGBT ppl in STEM, or lists of "Pioneering LGBT POC we should all know" always artists and activists. Anyone have suggestions for queer POC scientists and engineers to add to this list??
I am looking to integrate unheard voices into the survey class, before 1500. If you have secondary sources that you are willing to share please let me know.
Illinois just signed a new law mandating that LGBT figures that have made significant strides in humanity in the state's history be taught in schools. What do you guys think?
Teaching tolerance is very important in school, specially when it comes to LGBT tolerance
Nowadays there is much going on about LGBT+. Sensibility concerning gender and sexual orientation are on the ride. I would like to ask you how you deal with gender while collecting data through online questionnaire.
Are you asking biological gender at birth?
Are you giving as options male/female/other/not declare?
Are you giving as options male/female/not binary?
Can anyone suggest a better way?
And what about methodology? Are you including in the analysis? I recently collected a sample of around 5000 cases for a researc about mental health. Only about 20 claimed themselves as "else". How would you deal with it?
Excluding them from your analysis?
Including even if the sample is definitely not consistent enough?
Thanks in advance. Any input is very much welcome!
I am looking for a qualitative instrument (e.g. scale) related to minority stress, felt stigma, internalized stigma but specific to LGBTQ parents.
To describe the knowledge on LGBT and perception towards them among professionals who are using social media
The penumbra doctrine has been decisive in cases such as Roe v. Wade and Obergefell v. Hodges.
Over the years much of the research on domestic violence has looked at male abuse of a female partner, but more recently researchers have been looking at female abuse of male partners and the abuse within the LGBTIQ community. However, the discourse about gender inequality is strong. What are your views and why?
1.What is online survey and online questionnare?
2. How do you determine sample population?
3. Sampling procedure?
4.What are online research instruments?
5. Distribution of online research instruments?
5. Where can i get literature on online survey and online questionnare?
For a conference organized by the Real Sociedad Española de Química (R. S. E. Q.), which will be held in Sitges (Barcelona), in the month of July 2017, I am preparing a communication on "Great female scientific not known". I've found as case special to E. M. Kuznetsova (not is that means the "E" or the "M").
Not have a mail electronic or postal for contact with her (is more, not is if is alive). Could you help me in this regard. I would be useful to a biography, a Curriculum Vitae, a picture, an e-mail address, or postal address,...).
I would appreciate it much any information in this regard.
Many thanks for your kindness.
I am doing my dissertation on how loneliness and isolation among BME LGBTs contributes to their inability to access social care.
I am an undergraduate student and I am currently doing my final year dissertation titled: “Public's attitudes towards the LGBT community.” I am also taking into consideration participants’ cultural and religious background. Does anyone know where I can find a questionnaire related to that topic?
I am looking for quantitative studies on various interventions used for treating depression in LGBT community. I am finding very little. CBT, DBT, Narrative, etc. Anyone have any ideas. I am a graduate student studying social work and I am interested in this topic.
I realized that most health professionals are ill-prepared to take care about patient´s sexuality. So they need training programs to help them. Thus, which kind of information is more important or urgent to offer to them?
Please, cite at least 3.
Please write which is your context of job in health care.
I am looking for a standardised questionnaire to measure people's attitudes towards LGBT issues. I have found the "Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Knowledge and Attitudes Scale for Heterosexuals" but I do not particularly like the language they use.
I want to do a research about " the correlation between the workplace climate and the willingness about disclosure one's sexual orientation in the workplace "!
How can I find the measurement that measure "the degree of sexual orientation disclose for LGBT employee in the workplace" or " the willingness about disclosure one's sexual orientation in the workplace "? Thank you!
are you aware of any Guidelines/Manuals/Information which take into account the needs or the special circumstances of Lesbians/Gays/Bisexuals/Transgender/ queers* when they experience highly stressful situations such as domestic violence or homelessness?
I am looking especially for something aimed at first responders (e.g. Crisis hotline).
I'm preparing a study-abroad course in Gender and Sexual Minority Health Issues that will include comparing those issues in the US with the state of LGBT health in Iceland. One option, of course, is to stick with the readings I'd use for a course strictly on the US and do all of our comparison work on-the-ground when we land, but I'd prefer to offer my students some pre-travel readings to prepare them. Even working together with a research librarian, though, I'm not finding a whole lot, at least not in English.
So I'm interested to see if others are aware of resources other than the "usual suspects" journal databases. I'm even game to try and get articles translated if they are only available in Icelandic, but as I don't speak it, that somewhat hampers my ability to search for articles in that language.
Any suggestions or recommendations?
International norms have failed to justify realisation, implementation and enforcement of universal human rights, in some UN member states by individuals affected by controversial issues including racial discrimination, socioeconomic marginalisation, LGBT rights and slavery reparations.
I have read through the forms and documentation for the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study several times, and I am not seeing any health data about life partners having been captured. Regarding "blood relatives," there is some. I would assume that this is a result of "no promo homo."
This hasn't been a bad dream, has it?
What is appropriate content for this age category? How do you bring it ? What are the benefits?
I'm currently working on my MA linguistic thesis that deals with narratives of people suffering from Sexual Orientation Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (SO-OCD or also called HOCD). My aim is to do a corpus analysis and critical discourse analysis of these narratives and compare them to coming out narratives of self-identified gay people. My aim is to explore if both groups share some similarities or if there are differences.
Hi. I am discussing (in)visibility within Further Education. I am primarily looking at the invisibility of LGBT students, but am examining their invisibility within the realms of the invisibility of FE as a whole. How do we make the invisible visible? All suggestions as to where to find previous research will be welcomed.
I am currently working on developing an intervention to increase awareness about testicular cancer and other testicular abnormalities. I want the intervention to be LGBT sensitive. Is there any framework to guide my query? the educational intervention can be in the form of an app, a brochure, an e-brochure, and infograph etc.
I am currently busy reviewing literature on online mental health help-seeking behaviour with a specific focus of such behaviour by gender and sexual diversities. I’d really appreciate any article or author recommendations/suggestions around the following concepts:
- Both offline and online help-seeking behaviour (formal services or informal sources);
- Mental health and help-seeking behaviour; and,
- Help-seeking behaviour by LGBT individuals.
Thanking any contributors in advance!
I am interested in working on the topic of financial exclusion of Transgender. I need some literature for the same. Can anyone suggest me good articles or links for the said study from any country.
Criminologists appear to have carried out little research as to if LGBT people commit crime and how they experience the CJS. Is there any current/recent research about LGBT people, offending and their treatment by the CJS (apart from DV and Hate Crime).
In a recent episode of "How to Get Away with Murder," the "Asher Millstone" (Matt McGorry) character delivered a line when one of his fellow classmates/colleague, "Conner Walsh' (Jack Falahee) leaves the group to pursue a casual acquaintance. He said says, "I'm so fricking mad I wasn't born gay." The line, like many of the zingers in the show, was not lost on the fans who began commenting on social media. As you see in the attached scene, the delivery of this line is of course complicated by the situation and the events that lead up to the line and that follow its delivery, but the writers and Peter Norwalk, the show runner are treading into a territory of heteronormative desire that I have not witnessed in popular culture before. I know there has been much research in other fields that have positioned at least theoretical suggestions that some more violent behavior and thoughts against LGBT people by some self identified heterosexuals men may be connected to inner demons of the perpetrator possibly also being homosexual. My question regards any research being done that may be looking at agenda setting issues or other theoretical perspective about positioning LGBT behavior as a enviable action among heterosexuals. Also, are there other instances of this in popular culture? Also, if you have any reactions to any of this would be appreciated as well.
Specifically thinking of working with trans* clients and/or clients who have more fluid identities and sexualities.
I am doing research (content analysis) on empowering LGBT youth through social media participation (Youtube). I am looking at what people post (videos and comments), but I don't exactly know what content is really empowering.
I found a lot of literature on social support that analyzes forums and comments and it seems that giving and receiving opinions and advice has a sort of empowering effect upon people. However, I haven't found any clearly stated connection between social support and empowerment.
Can anyone help me clarify this? Any input is much appreciated.
We have the maximum rating of 6.5kV with 3kA switch this rating is not enough for high power conversion. So we are connecting discrete switches in series to achieve maximum rating high voltage switch.
What do know about the psychological characteristics or well-being of children of lesbian and gay parents? What do we know about same-sex parent headed families and the further psychosexual development (gender typed behavior) of boys and girls?
I'm doing some research on this right now, and finding an interesting relationship. Has anyone out there studied this (directly or through lit review)? Any expectations one way or the other? Do you think that gay and lesbian people are more likely to report their sexual orientation in a survey than straight people?
Hadn't seen this question posted on ResearchGate yet, but sorry if it's a duplicate. I'm not seeing anything in some quick Google searches.
The Liverpool Mental Health Consortium LGBT group are planning on administering a questionnaire to the LGBT Liverpool community
I am doing independent research on the topic "Transitioning for the Spouses/Significant Others/Partners of Transsexuals". Through research consisting of interviewing couples who were married or involved in an equivalent relationship and after they were committed to each other one of the partners came out as a transsexual and transitioned to their identified gender, and the couple managed to stay together as the same loving and romantic couple they were before the transsexual partner identified, accepted, and transitioned as a transsexual. If anyone knows of individuals in this situation I would greatly appreciate getting in contact with them. A big concern to most if not all of you is probably the couples security, discretion, and anonymity; rest assure that as an transsexual woman who is involved with the transsexual community and transsexual issues my first priority (even above my actual research) is the anonymity, discretion, and personal security of any participants I work with for my research. I know first hand what outing does to transsexuals and their loved ones and would never out anyone for any reason especially another transsexual. To assure them as well as you that this is a priority to me, I don't need or even want their first or last names, just the type of relationship (heterosexual, male homosexual, or female homosexual) which one is cisgender (female or male) and which is transsexual (MTF or FTM). Basically, I would like to just conduct an interview either in person, over the phone or video messaging, or email communication if necessary regarding the process that both the cisgender and transsexual partners in the relationship went through and hear their story, from their point of view without censoring them, of how and what they did to survive one of them identifying as transsexual and transitioning to their identified gender. I would like to conduct a total of ten fully detailed but completely confidential and anonymous interviews to have sufficient data for my analysis and thesis paper. Also I plan on putting my thesis out there so other couples in the future have some sort of guidance; presently there is little or close to nothing in print (books) for couples to access as a guidance source and I would like to change that by documenting and getting my thesis published so I can hopefully help them stay as they were before transitioning or become even stronger after transitioning.
Self-arranged vs clinical donor insemination? Anonymous, identity release, known donor? Sibling treatment? Costs? Information from international colleagues to summarize similarities/differences between our countries would be very helpful.
Has anyone compared the important factors towards quality of life in these populations and their relationship with healthcare?
