9780826122346: Gay and Lesbian Aging: Research and Future Directions

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 Older Gay Men
  • Well-Being Among Middle-Aged and Older Single Gay Men
  • Lesbian Friendships at and Beyond Midlife

Contributors include Judith Barker, Jacqueline Weinstock, Bertram Cohler, and Doug Kimmel, among others.

About the Author:

Gilbert Herdt, PhD, is Director of the National Sexuality Resource Center, and Professor and Director of Human Sexuality Studies at San Francisco State University.

A Fulbright scholar, Dr. Herdt worked in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, on which his first book, Guardians of the Flutes (nominated for the National Book Award) and a subsequent BBC film were based. Dr. Herdt was previously on the faculty at Stanford University, and was a professor and chair of the Committee on Human Development at the University of Chicago.

The recipient of many awards and honors, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and NIHM Individual Postdoctoral Fellowship, and the Ruth Benedict Prize in Anthropology, Herdt has written and edited more than 25 books and 100 journal articles, chapters, monographs, and reports.



Brian de Vries, PhD, is Professor and Director of Gerontology at San Francisco State University and Adjunct Professor of Gerontology at the University of Texas, School of Public Health, Houston.

Dr. de Vries is a Fellow of the Gerontological Society of America; he is a founding member and former chair of the Interest Group of Death, Dying, Bereavement and Widowhood and a founding member of the Interest Group on Reminiscence and Life Review. He is Associate Editor of The International Journal of Aging and Human Development and has served as Guest Editor of two special issues on Omega: Journal of Death and Dying (1977) and Guest Co-Editor of Generations (2001), the journal of the American Society on Aging.

Dr. de Vries has also edited Kinship Bereavement in Later Life; End of Life Issues: Interdisciplinary and Multidimensional Perspectives (Springer 1999); and Narrative Gerontology: Theory, Research and Practice (co-edited with G. Kenyon and P. Clark, Springer Publishing, 2001).

Review:

“This book brings to light important issues for the aging gay and lesbian population, including their health and social service needs, and demonstrates the lack of studies, pointing to a need for more research into the gerontology of their population.”
―Savannah Jones, SirReadaLot.org
