A collection of papers that make significant and original contributions to the field of Lesbian and Gay psychology.
This special issue on Coming Out in Higher Education consists of 12 short (personal, empirical and theoretical) papers by authors from the UK, the US, Canada and Australia. Some of the contributors are psychologists; others teach in a variety of disciplines, from sociology to information technology. Some teach about sexuality and gender; others struggle to find connections between the topics they teach and (their) sexuality. Despite this diversity among contributors, there are patterns across the issues grappled with, and we have organised the papers into three sections: coming out in higher education; intersections of sexuality, gender, race and class; and negotiating heteronormativity in higher education.
