Baricevic, Marti L.; Kashubeck-West, Susan – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2019

Spencer, Leland G.; Patterson, G – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2017
Sexual and gender minorities have long quibbled over whether the "LGBT" moniker (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) is inclusive enough. While we celebrate the proliferation of sexual and gender identities, we also believe that this ever-expanding moniker has become an alibi for disavowing institutional violence--particularly in higher…

Victimization based on actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender expression (SOGE) carries significant consequences.
