LGBT People Aging

The attached PDF document shows the complete list of the literature we have compiled on the health and psychosocial aspects of aging as it affects the LGBTQ+ population. As of December 2019 the bibliography has more than 1,000 citations.

You can view the entire bibliography as a PDF document. You can also download or print it in its entirety. Because of the large number of citations, abstracts are omitted.

Upon request, any subsection of the bibliography can be supplied to the requester, complete with abstracts. Contact us and request a search in your area of interest, e.g., lesbians, transgender, social networks, isolation, long-term care, end-of-life planning, etc.
