Black LGBT Health in the United States: The Intersection of Race, Gender, and Sexual Orientation focuses on the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of health and considers both risk and resiliency factors for the black LGBT population. Contributors to this collection intimately understand the associations between health and intersectional anti-black racism, heterosexism, homonegativity, biphobia, transphobia, and social class. This collection fills a gap in current scholarship by providing information about an array of health issues like cancer, juvenile incarceration, and depression that affect all subpopulations of black LGBT people, especially black bisexual-identified women, black bisexual-identified men, and black transgender men. This audiobook is recommended for listeners interested in psychology, health, gender studies, race studies, social work, and sociology.
This work is certain to be a seminal text for the future study of black LGBTQ health. The editor's approach to include the intersections of race, sexual orientation, gender identity, and religison was extremely well done. This text should be a must read for anyone working, studying or researching in the field of LGBTQ health. Bravo/a to the editors and the authors for their work on this text. The concepts of socio-cultural and socio-political health described in this book are groundbreaking and I am sure that the authors will continue on to conduct important research in the field of black LGBTQ health.
