Speaking of Psychology Podcast Episode: The history of LGBTQ psychology from Stonewall to now, with Peter Hegarty

A recent episode of the American Psychological Association podcast Speaking of Psychology features historian of psychology Peter Hegarty on “The history of LGBTQ psychology from Stonewall to now.” The episode is described as follows:

Over the past decades, the focus of LGBTQ activism has shifted and evolved, from the AIDS crisis in the 1980s to the fight for marriage equality to the focus on transgender rights today. Peter Hegarty, PhD, author of the book “A Recent History of Lesbian and Gay Psychology: From Homophobia to LGBT,” discusses how psychological research has reflected and responded to these changes, how it has helped move the needle in the fight for LGBTQ rights in the U.S. court system, and his own research on auditory gaydar and continuing discrimination against LGBTQ people.
