The Centre for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans Research

The Centre for LGBTQ Research conducts internationally recognised and pioneering research in LGBT issues.  Conceptually innovative and empirically grounded in mixed methods research, the centre brings together inter-disciplinary researchers with a distinctive focus on LGBT human rights in health and social care alongside work in identity theory and politics.  Our approaches to research include Public and Patient Involvement, working alongside the users of public services to ensure their perspectives are represented in the work we do.

Particular research themes

 

  • Research which contributes to the delivery of culturally sensitive and appropriate care for LGBT people
  • Public and Patient Involvement
  • Knowledge exchange or knowledge transfer
