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

Roberts, Leah Marion; Marx, Robert A. – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2018
Schools across the United States have taken up the task of 'protecting' lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth, but their reliance on identity-based antidiscrimination policies may reinscribe power inequities. While previous scholarship critiques and cautions against such protectionist approaches, this paper explores why such…

Wozolek, Boni – Journal of LGBT Youth, 2018
Gaslighting is often discussed as an intentional set of interactions that are designed to leave the victim question her own sense of self and sanity.
