NEW YORK — A preview issue is now available of a new gay health journal called LGBT Health, a peer-reviewed publication dedicated to promoting health care among sexual minorities, LGBT Weekly, a gay media company, reported this week.
The journal provides a forum for members of the research, medical and advocacy communities to present and discuss the latest research findings and critical issues related to all aspects of the health and health care of sexual orientation and gender identity minorities, the article said. LGBT Health will be published online and in a print edition. The preview issue is online now.
From their website:
LGBT Health is the quarterly peer-reviewed journal dedicated to promoting optimal healthcare for millions of sexual and gender minority persons worldwide by focusing specifically on health while maintaining sufficient breadth to encompass the full range of relevant biopsychosocial and health policy issues. This Journal aims to promote greater awareness of the health concerns particular to each sexual minority population, and to improve availability and delivery of culturally competent healthcare services. LGBT Health also encourages further research and increased funding in this critical but currently underserved domain. The Journal provides a much-needed authoritative source and international forum in all areas pertinent to LGBT health and healthcare services. Contributions from all continents are solicited including Asia and Africa which are currently underrepresented in sex research.
