This guide will direct you to resources related to LGBT studies

LGBT Health Organizations

  • The Gay & Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA) provides research, advocacy, and other information related to LGBT concerns. They advocate for the rights of LGBT people, and have started a variety of initiatives, including the Lesbian Health Fund, which funds research on a wide range of health issues, and (with the Human Rights Campaign Foundation) the Healthcare Equality Index, which evaluates healthcare facilities for equal and respectful treatment of LGBT patients and employees.
  • The Fenway Institute does independent research and public advocacy on behalf of LGBT patients.
  • MedlinePlus: Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Health
    Produced by the National Library of Medicine, this MedlinePlus page offers information on health concerns of LGBT people, including overviews and news, clinical trials and research articles, and health information for specific populations.

Research Strategies

To find scholarly articles about LGBT health, consider starting with the PubMed database (available to U of U faculty, staff, and students only). Use the MeSH heading "homosexual" and then add additional search terms.
