LGBT Research Guide: Journal, Magazine, & Newspaper Articles

Journal Articles

CQ Researcher
Current and controversial issues with summaries, pro/con statements, tables & graphs, and lists of further reading. A great resource for informative or persuasive speeches or brief papers. Recent reports include gay marriage, gays on campus, transgender issues, bullying, and gay rights. Reports go back to 1923, so this is also a great resource to use to quickly see how perception of these issues has changed.
