Editors: Todd G. Morrison and Melanie A. Morrison (University of Saskatchewan, Canada), Mark A. Carrigan (University of Warwick, UK), Daragh T. McDermott (National University of Ireland, Galway)
Book Description:
This new book presents current research focusing on sexual minorities. Topics discussed include gay and lesbian parenthood; asexuality; media representations of trebly marginalized minorities; the effect of imaged contact on heterosexual women’s attitudes toward lesbian women; the high-school experiences of sexual and gender minority youth and best practices in the development of interventions designed to attenuate homonegativity. The final entry is a “virtual discussion” in which contributors responded to a set of questions that focused on key issues in the field of sexual minority studies. (Imprint: Nova Press)
