Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Allies (LGBTQA) Research Team

Team of seven current doctoral and seven current master’s students researching LGBTQA mental health issues. Current topics primarily fall within transgender issues and trauma issues within the LGBT community. The team is currently conducting a large, multilevel study on the impact of gender roles on LGBT persons’ experiences of interpersonal trauma and IPV. We are also collaborating with community partners on conducting a comprehensive needs assessment (support, treatment needs, training needs) for the trans community in Memphis. The team is in the finishing stages of several projects such as the impact of non-disclosure of same-sex activity and HIV+ status on psychological distress and the stigma, career issues for trans* individuals,  and barriers related to mentoring across cohorts in the gay community. Future plans include two studies on gender and sexual orientation development for LGBT people in Thailand and follow-up studies on some of the above. The team is also in the finishing stages of a project on decision-making and parenting styles within same sex couples who have adopted children.
