Journal history

The Gay and Lesbian Issues and Psychology Interest Group of the APS has a long history of supporting academic pursuits, such as in the form of conferences and scholarly newsletters produced by members of the Interest Group. 2005 saw the commencement of another of these pursuits: the publication of an APS endorsed journal, titled Gay and Lesbian Issues and Psychology Review.
