NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — A new peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert Inc. publishers called “LGBT Health” is slated to launch in the fall and will identify crucial LGBT health care needs and the means to address them, the publisher announced in a press release this week.

“The Journal will assess the health care needs of each population that comprises the LGBT community, and identify gaps in knowledge as well as priority areas where policy development and research are needed to achieve healthcare parity for sexual and gender minorities,” Dr. William Byne, editor in chief, said in a statement.

The release said health status and health care needs of the LGBT population are “inadequately understood due to both the paucity of LGBT health research and the practice of mistakenly treating the LGBT population as a single entity when each letter stands for a distinct population with unique health vulnerabilities and concerns.”

Specific content areas will include health care disparities, barriers to health care, 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.

  • The Psychology of Gay Men is immeasurabely different than Hetero attractions. Where a Gay Man can go to get the information he needs is not always made clear or available. We need the support of Civil Societies so that this Gay Psychology is not used as a weapon to hurt ourselves or others.
