LGBTQ Topics in Nursing Journals

One of the “actions” that emerged from discussions at the 2013 Nursing Summit was the need for mentoring and support for nurses who are writing and publishing LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, inquiring) topics in nursing journals, or who want to do exactly that. So Mickey Eliason and Peggy Chinn have set up a virtual support group for this precise purpose. This is a private WordPress web site and blog, so if you want to participate you will need to request access to the blog, either by sending Peggy or Mickey an email asking to be added to the site, or by going to the blog site http://lgbtqinurseauthors.wordpress.com  and sending a request to join the blog. You can remain as an active participant as long as the site serves you well … when you no longer want or need to be involved, you can drop off!

Here is the description of the site:

This is a private blog for nurses who are writing and seeking publication for their work focused on LGBTQI health issues. Members of the group will all be blog authors, and will participate in sharing their ideas, challenges and issues related to writing and publishing LGBTQI focused articles. All members will also participate in providing feedback and suggestions for other contributors. All members agree to:

  • Post regularly as a means to nurture consistent writing habits.
  • Provide constructive feedback and encouragement for other members of the group.
  • Follow the blog, including posts and comments, in order to remain engaged and provide timely feedback and interaction on the blog.
  • Maintain confidentiality of all issues and personal information shared on the blog.

The blog site permits you to request enrollment, or you can contact Peggy Chinn directly: peggychinn@me.com
