Gay and Lesbian Aging by Brian de Vries

Book Description

The year 2003 marks the 30th anniversary of the landmark "declassification" of homosexuality as a disease by the American Psychiatric Association - a watershed in the lives of gays and lesbians in the United States. For the first time in history, a generation of self-identified lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and transgender individuals are approaching retirement. This volume brings to the forefront important issues concerning the health, mental health, and concomitant special social service needs of this population, and emphasizes the need for more research on aging sexual minorities. Based on empirical and qualitative research methods, chapters focus on the myriad issues of aging for lesbians and gay men, including: social and cultural considerations about HIV among midlife and older gay men; psychological well-Being in midlife and older gay men; well-being among middle-aged and older single gay men; and lesbian friendships at and beyond midlife.
