Preview

A tremendous outpouring of psychological research on sexual orientation has occurred in recent years, and interested readers have been hard-pressed to keep up with the pace of scholarship in this field. In particular, the last decade has seen a great increase in research on psychology and sexual orientation. This book contains a review of contemporary psychological research and theory on sexual orientation in their specific fields of work. The book is divided in four parts: concepts, theories, and perspectives; development over the life course; domains of experience; and communities and contextual issues. Individual chapters focus on topics such as bisexual and transgender identities, biological foundations of sexual orientation, emergent adulthood in lesbian and gay lives, same-sex romantic relationships, sexual orientation and mental health, family formation and parenthood, sexual orientation and hate crimes, and race and ethnicity among lesbian, gay, and bisexual communities, along with many more relevant areas.

Keywords: sexual orientation; bisexual; transgender; lesbian; gay; same-sex relationships; mental health; family formation; parenthood; hate crimes
