Gabriele Griffin - Representations of HIV and AIDS : Visibility Blue/S - GLBT Non Fiction All Books by Gabriele Griffin - Author of : Representations of HIV and AIDS : Visibility Blue/S
Paperback (April 2001) 
Manchester Univ Pr; ISBN: 0719047110

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"What happened to the plague of HIV/AIDS that once seemed so threatening? Gabriele Griffin argues that the explosion of HIV/AIDS into highly visible cultural forms, from movies, theatre, activist interventions, and art from the late-1980s to the mid-1990s has been replaced by a retreat to artistic invisibility. Griffin suggests that changes in the understanding of HIV/AIDS, the shift from "dying of the disease" to "living with it" in Western cultures, and a failure to grasp the full extent of the growth and impact of HIV/AIDS in a number of African and Asian countries has led to the "death" of the disease in the Western media."

After a review of the mental health development of normal sexual minority youth, the subject of aging and sexual orientation is addressed. Psychiatric professional issues related to child custody, discrimination, domestic violence, immigration, and other legal proceedings involving one or more same-sex oriented individuals are also discussed. The theoretical basis for sexual conversion (or "reparative") therapies are questioned and their side effects are reported. Finally, issues related to transgender communities are reviewed."

Caitlin Ryan & Donna Futterman - Lesbian and Gay Youth - GLBT Non Fiction All Books by Caitlin Ryan and Donna Futterman - Authors of : Lesbian and Gay Youth
Paperback - 256 pages 0 edition (August 15, 1998) 
Columbia Univ Pr; ISBN: 0231111916

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"The authors of this essential new guide maintain that lesbian and gay adolescents "rarely receive health education and counseling in a way that is relevant to them." Health and emotional risks to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered youth are heightened by prejudice and the chance of antigay violence, as well as by the need for secrecy. In fact, the problems of disclosure may be the greatest impediment to appropriate health care for gay minors, who (often rightly) fear that their parents will be informed of their sexuality or their medical conditions. Health care providers have been working without clinical care guidelines for gay youth, let alone a single resource that brings together protocols for assessment, treatment, and psychosocial care"
