In this volume, researchers explore the effects of the 2016 US Presidential Election on the LGBTQ community from a wide variety of disciplines including communications, gender studies, nursing, political science, public health, psychology, cultural analysis, and social work.

The research in this volume shows that the election had negative effects on the personal well-being, relationships, and families of LGBTQ people. The research also explains ways in which members of the LGBTQ community reacted to the election with hope, resilience, and positive relational outcomes. Moving topically from a discussion of the election and the LGBTQ community at the system level, the contributors move on to assess the effect of the election at both family level and the individual level as well.

Representing qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methodological approaches, this interdisciplinary volume will appeal to students and researchers interested in the 2016 US election, and those interested in the impact of politics on marginalized communities more broadly. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of GLBT Family Studies.
