A Call to Action in Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Theory Building and Research
Bowman, Sharon L.
Counseling Psychologist, v31 n1 p63-69 2003
Phillips, Ingram, Smith, and Mindes's significant contribution exposes some of the gaps in our current writing regarding gay men, lesbian women, and bisexual men and women. Counseling psychology should incorporate gay, lesbian, and bisexual (GLB) samples into some of our current mainstream areas of study, including a focus on lesbian women, gay men, and bisexual men and women as separate groups, and more sophisticated theorizing and research. Although counseling psychology is aware that individuals may identify by race/ethnicity, disability, or sexual identity (among other core identities), this contribution reminds us that more than one identity may be salient for any given person.
