Committee on the Status of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) People in Sociology

 

Council established this and three other Status Committees to advise and guide the Association on the status of the discipline and profession of those groups that have experienced a pattern of discrimination in society.  Every five years Council reviews the work of these committees and renews or retires the committees.  The most recent review occurred in 2015.

Mission Statement


The purpose of the Committee on the Status of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) People in Sociology is to address topics pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer-identified members of the American Sociological Association. The committee addresses educational, workplace, disciplinary, research, and visibility issues pertaining to LGBTQ sociologists. The committee monitors these issues primarily through conducting formal research on specific questions, fielding concerns raised by ASA members of all sections, and through appointing liaisons to the LGBTQ Caucus and LGBTQ concerns committees in regional disciplinary organizations. The committee endeavors to respond to problems faced by LGBTQ sociologists through recommending formal and informal changes to the ASA Council and/or by providing information to ASA members.
