Reaction to the Special Issue on Centralizing the Experiences of LGB People of Color in Counseling Psychology
Zea, Maria Cecilia
Counseling Psychologist, v38 n3 p425-433 2010
This reaction article comments on the Major Contribution "Centralizing the Experiences of LGB People of Color in Counseling Psychology." The content analysis of the published literature on lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) people of color from 1998 to 2007 provides much-needed information that will help psychologists set future research agendas and move the field forward. The methodological issues associated with doing research on LGB and transgender people of color raise important issues to be considered from the inception of research questions to dissemination of findings. Respondent-driven sampling is proposed as an additional recruitment method for working with LGB people of color. The empirical contribution "LGB of Color and White Individuals' Perceptions of Heterosexist Stigma, Internalized Homophobia, and Outness" succeeded at addressing several limitations uncovered in the content analysis of research on LGB people of color. This special issue was successful in accomplishing its main goal, centralizing the experiences of LGB people of color.
