Over the last 30 years, the health needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender, and queer Americans have become increasingly
recognized, in particular for the ways in which they are distinct
from those typically assessed and addressed in society.
Universities and researchers are paying greater attention to LGBTQ
public health issues and how they might adapt existing methods to
research marginalized communities, but-until now-there has been no
authoritative resource to guide their education or practice.
Developed for graduate students in public health and health
sciences-but perfect for anyone interested in this topic-this book
will fill that gap and provide the necessary public health tools to
teach about and study LGBTQ populations effectively. Divided into
three sections and edited by top scholars, LGBTQ Health Research
explains research methods important to descriptive epidemiology
that are needed to document health disparities among LGBTQ
populations. The book also examines research methods that help
explain the driving forces of these disparities. Focusing on
real-world experience in developing and testing interventions to
mitigate health disparities in LGBTQ populations, it also breaks
down issues that challenge the direct application of standard
research methods with these communities, including those related to
sampling, measurement, choice of theoretical variables to explain
the distribution of health and illness, cultural competence in
intervention design, and community participation. Promoting the
creation and diffusion of effective interventions, the book takes a
holistic approach to address longstanding research gaps regarding
important marginalized communities. It also documents profound
health disparities in many LBGTQ populations across a wide range of
health conditions and explains why future development of the field
must be based on inclusive science and rigorous research methods.
LGBTQ Health Research is an essential textbook for any courses that
deal with the intersection of marginalization, health, sexuality,
and gender. Contributors: Jose A. Bauermeister, Chris Beyrer,
