Special collection of scholarly articles: LGBT & Awareness

“The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.”

—Nathaniel Branden, American Psychologist

Thank you, readers, for joining us on our month-long LGBT blog take-over. Together we turned a critical eye on the human rights and rhetoric surrounding the LGBT community. Expanding past the common belief that equality is purely a social issue, our guest editors and articles showed relevance in business, education, psychology, bioethics and more. To facilitate the continuation of our thoughts and communal work, we’re setting free more scholarly articles and book chapters focused on awareness as a crucial engine in social change.

We encourage you to share this page, the blog, your comments, and this content with peers. We encourage you to do your part for human rights and advocacy because if we learned anything from this month, it’s that LGBT rights affect all of us.
