Journal article

Still among the missing? A content analysis of LGBT articles in social work journals, 1998–2009

Authors:
JOHNSTON Lon B., STEWART Chris
Journal article citation:
Journal of Gay and Lesbian Social Services, 25(2), 2013, pp.232-243.
Publisher:

Place of publication:
Philadelphia, USA

In 2002, Van Voorhis and Wagner published an article that examined how often, between 1988 and 1997, four major American social work journals published content on gay and lesbian people (Social Work, Child Welfare, Social Service Review, and Families in Society). This content analysis is a follow-up to the previous one to see if the findings were different when the same four journals were examined between 1998 and 2009. As with the Van Voorhis and Wagner study, articles were coded depending upon their focus on HIV/AIDS and the gay community or other issues impacting gays and lesbians. Similarly, articles were coded depending on whether they focused on the client, worker, or macro system. This study found a decrease in the number of same-sex articles from 77 in the first analysis to only 50 in the present one. Furthermore, there was a decrease of almost 90% in the number of articles on HIV/AIDS, from 51 to 5. Van Voorhis and Wagner indicated that social work educators would not be able to easily find gay and lesbian content if they had to rely only on the four major journals. This study reaches a similar conclusion. (Edited publisher abstract)

Yet another minority issue or good news for all? Approaching LGBT issues in European social work education

Authors:
NOTHDURFTER Urban, NAGY Andrea
Journal article citation:
European Journal of Social Work, 20(3), 2017, pp.374-386.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis

This article addresses the questions of why to include and how to approach LGBT issues in the context of European social work education. Referring to social work’s commitment to LGBT people, the article points out its ongoing relevance as questions of marginalisation and discrimination point far beyond formal equality in legislation and normalisation of homosexuality within existing societal institutions. Furthermore, new questions and dynamics in rapidly changing and highly diverse societal contexts bring about new challenges in addressing LGBT issues. Against this background, the article discusses problems of representation and knowledge and underlines the potential of a queer approach. A queer perspective questions taken-for-granted assumptions about sexual orientation, gender identity and intimate relationships. It challenges normalising categories of sex, gender and desire and brings out possibilities existing beyond the heteronormative order. This way, it offers social work education a powerful theoretical lens to address issues on sexual orientation and gender identity not only as yet another minority issue, but as transversal matter and as good news for all.

Publisher:

Place of publication:

Queer (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, questioning, two-spirited) youth are greatly overrepresented in the homeless youth population. The present review critically analyses the literature on queer youth homelessness, with a particular focus on (a) methodological issues; (b) entries into homelessness; (c) programming needs; (d) targeted programming; and (e) exits out of homelessness. Results from this review demonstrate that homeless queer youth are a unique population who require specialised services, implemented by sensitive and knowledgeable staff. Recommendations focus on practical implications, policy implications, and ideas for future research. (Edited publisher abstract)

Love in a cold climate: changes in the fortunes of LGBT men and women with learning disabilities?

Author:
ABBOTT David
Journal article citation:
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, 43(2), 2015, pp.100-105.
Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

‘Secret Loves, Hidden Lives?’ was a piece of research which explored the lives and loves of gay, lesbian and bisexual people with learning disabilities. The research arguably influenced the development of policy in that same sex relationships were subsequently mentioned in English government policy on learning disability. The research had an extensive programme of dissemination, and whilst no systematic attempt was made to measure the impact of the dissemination or the research, this study suggests ways in which the research might (or might not) have made a difference in relation to: telling untold stories, supporting front line workers with practical resources, challenging negative assumptions held by staff in services and putting LGBT people with learning disabilities in touch with each other. The study also considers work which was left undone and reflects on the opportunities to support LGBT people with learning disabilities in the current context of financial austerity.

Queer is the new black? Not so much: racial disparities in anti-LGBTQ discrimination

Authors:
WHITFIELD Darren L., et al
Journal article citation:
Journal of Gay and Lesbian Social Services, 26(4), 2014, pp.426-440.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis
Place of publication:
Philadelphia, USA

Using sample data from an anonymous 2010 LGBT Needs Assessment from a USA advocacy organisation for LGBT individuals and their families, this study examines the intersection of race and sexual orientation in the experience of discrimination among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people. The final analytical sample 3,854. The results suggest that while a majority of LGBTQ individuals report being victims of anti-LGBTQ discrimination, racial minorities experience even greater levels of anti-LGBTQ discrimination than do White LGBTQ people. The findings suggest that the intersection of race and sexual orientation creates elevated levels of discrimination risk beyond the already elevated rates of discrimination experienced by members of the LGBTQ community for LGBTQ racial minorities.
