In recognition of October as LGBTQIA+ History month the WHSC Library is highlighting a list of resources available through Emory Libraries in support of LGBTQIA+ Health.
We also offer a year-round research guide for LGBTQIA+ Health Resources. The guide is aimed at healthcare students, educators, researchers, and clinicians seeking a better understanding of the historical health issues facing LGBTQIA+ populations and current research on improving future care.
To review the current literature, check out some of these dedicated journals provided through Emory Library subscriptions and Emory eJournals:
- Culture, Health & Sexuality
- LGBT Health
- Journal of Homosexuality
- Journal of Gay & Lesbian Mental Health
- Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity
