"But anger expresed and translated into action in the service of our vision and our future is a liberating and strengthening act of clarification, for it is in the painful process of this translation that we identify who are our allies with whom we have grave differences, and who are our genuine enemies."
-- Audre Lorde

UCSD Library New LGBT Resource 

Handbook of Psychology and Sexual Orientation / Charlotte J. Patterson and Anthony R. D'Augelli, eds.


Recent years have seen a plethora of research on the psychology of sexual orientation. The Handbook of Psychology and Sexual Orientation synthesizes that research, offering an excellent summary of the state of current understanding in the field.


The book is divided into four broad themes. "Concepts, Theories, and Perspectives" explores issues such as bisexual and transgender identities, biological foundations of sexual orientation, and demographic perspectives on sexual orientation.  "Development over the Life Course" looks at sexual orientation development from adolescence through middle adulthood and beyond. "Domains of Experience" examines sexual orientation in relation to careers, health, mental health and family. And, finally, "Communities and Contextual Issues" considers social implications of sexual orientation: societal attitudes, victimization and hate crime, and race/ethnicity among LGB communities. This book is available at Geisel Library.         


Summer Session I Course 

CGS 102: Intersectional and Trans Embodiments of Race and Gender     

  This course focuses on performances and narratives of boundary-crossing embodiments of gender and race, including trans and  genderqueer expressions, performances that make explicit the intersectionality of race, gender, and class, and narratives of counter-normative bodies in dissent. Readings include scholarly research, memoir, fiction, drama, and film presentations. Students will be assigned analytical as well as creative projects.
