Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Youth with Disabilities: A Meta-Synthesis
Duke, Thomas Scott
Journal of LGBT Youth, v8 n1 p1-52 2011
This meta-synthesis of empirical and nonempirical literature analyzed 24 journal articles and book chapters that addressed the intersection of disability, [homo]sexuality, and gender identity/expression in P-12 schools, colleges and universities, supported living programs, and other educational and social contexts in Australia, Belgium, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The articles and chapters emphasized the diversity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth with disabilities--culturally, linguistically, sexually, and in terms of abilities, disabilities, and related service needs--while noting that all (or certainly most) lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth with disabilities possess multiple stigmatized identities as sexual/gender minorities and young people with disabilities. (Contains 3 tables.)
