"I Only Read about Myself on Bathroom Walls": The Need for Research on the Mental Health of Lesbians and Gay Men.
Rothblum, Esther D.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v62 n2 p213-20 Apr 1994
Notes little empirical research exists on mental health issues of lesbians/gays. Contends that whether researchers choose to define sexual orientation by sexual behavior, self-definition, or membership in lesbian and gay community groups will impact results. Sees mental health research that includes lesbians, gays, and heterosexuals allowing examination of relative salience of gender versus sexual orientation. (Author/NB)
