This Special Issue on LGBTI+ Health is dedicated to novel research focusing on the healthcare of the broad and diverse population of lesbian, gay, bi+, transgender and gender diverse people, as well as people with variations of sex characteristics (often referred to as intersex persons).
We invite scholars to submit reviews and empirical papers and encourage interdisciplinary approaches to LGB, trans, and/or intersex research in health care. Papers in which an intersectional approach is central, or which focus on segments of, or on diversity within LGBTI+ persons (class, age, ethnicity, religion, etc.), are most welcomed.
The topics may include but are not limited to:
- Social health and wellbeing ((non-)acceptance, violence, discrimination, rejection);
- Mental and physical health;
- Sexual health (sexual pleasure, attitudes and practices, sexual risks and HIV, etc.);
- Health-related quality of life;
- Access to/experiences with LGBTI+ health services;
- Organization of LGBTI+ health services;
- LGBTI+ health policies.
