O jeitinho das capixabas: Movimento Social LGBT Militantes Trans do Espírito Santo

TOSTA, A. L. Z. 25 June 2015 (has links)
Made available in DSpace on 2016-08-29T15:33:39Z (GMT). No. of bitstreams: 1 tese_8937_Dissertacao_Andre_Tosta.pdf: 956155 bytes, checksum: 46b83915eff5ed94673d12d1dc80ad91 (MD5) Previous issue date: 2015-06-25 / Esta dissertação é o resultado da investigação realizada entre 2013 e 2014 no estado do Espírito Santo que analisou a atuação política de pessoas trans, indivíduos que se reconhecem como travestis e transexuais, conforme delimitação identitária do próprio movimento político. Apoiada numa proposta de investigação descritiva e interpretativa a pesquisa se apoia em três componentes teóricos: (a) a mobilização política decorre muitas vezes da existência de um sentimento de 'solidariedade' gerado por uma experiência compartilhada.; (b) o 'sujeito' é o resultado da articulação das vivências experienciadas, sendo elas individuais e coletivas; (c) os movimentos sociais podem ser compreendidos como 'campos' que geram mudanças subjetiva nos sujeitos mediante a incorporação por estes das lógicas estruturantes e estruturadas daquele. Por conclusão defende-se o argumento que, se o movimento LGBT (e as ativistas trans) pautam suas reivindicações em torno de ideais como 'visibilidade' e 'cidadania', é preciso questionar o sentido que essas lutas políticas encontram nas vivências concretas dessas pessoas. Antes de recorrer a especulação simplista de que a 'identidade' e a 'injustiça' sejam os elementos responsáveis pelo engajamento nos movimentos sociais, devemos compreender como tais elementos se acomodam e negociam com os 'quadros' coletivos dos apoiadores e opositores e, sobretudo, como eles se tornam 'oportunidades' de atuação e de mobilização. Palavras-chave: movimentos sociais; travestilidades; transexualidades, LGBT, identidade.

Exploring Gay Men’s Use of People-Nearby Applications

Rowsell, Derek 28 March 2018 (has links)
Background: Gay men have adopted the use of people-nearby applications (PNA) to connect with members of the LGBT+ community. PNA uses global positioning system (GPS) data to locate other users in the area and facilitates communication between users through online profiles and instant messaging services. Objectives: This thesis explored gay men’s process of using PNA to connect with other users. Methods: The thesis work was conducted in two phases. The first phase was a review of the existing literature with literature synthesised into major themes. The second phase was an original qualitative study that used group sessions within a qualitative descriptive method and used thematic analysis to explore experiences of PNA use. Findings: The reviewed articles (n = 40) evolved into four major themes: risk, stigma, sexuality, and community. The theme of risk was overrepresented in the literature and comprised research that reviewed the sexual health risks of using PNA to meet partners. The review themes aligned closely with the four themes that emerged from participants’ (n = 6) experiences that were revealed in the original qualitative study: community, hope, stigma, and doubt. The themes of hope and doubt were found to be driving forces in a cyclical pattern of use reported by the participants, wherein users will repeatedly experience cycling phases of app use and disuse. Conclusion: Phase one of this thesis work exposed a gap in the knowledge related to the process of gay men using PNA. Phase two began to fill that gap by exploring the process of using PNA and furthering academic knowledge of how gay men interact and experience PNA use. The knowledge created in this thesis may assist nurses by providing them with improved cultural understanding of gay men and facilitate open communication between nurses and gay clients.

Improving Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health Care Outcomes

Agosto, David 01 January 2019 (has links)
Many lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals report experiencing discrimination in their health care that leads to avoidance of regular appointments with providers. Lack of regular primary care can delay diagnoses of preventable conditions and increase patient risks for chronic disease complications. A systematic review of the literature was conducted to understand LGBT cultural competencies for nursing and other health care providers. The Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews and Melnyk's levels of evidence framed this systematic literature review. Articles for inclusion were limited to those published in English between 2008 and 2018. Keywords used in the literature search included LGBT health disparity, LGBT cultural competency orientation, and nursing LGBT education. The search yielded 70 article results, which were further reduced to 12 articles by critically analyzing the applicability of the literature to the practice-related questions and removing duplicate articles. Five articles met the criteria for Levels III-IV (case-control or cohort), 6 met the criteria for Level II (randomized control trials), and 1 was Level 1 (systematic review). The analysis of evidence demonstrated the importance of providing education to nurses and other health care providers regarding LGBT cultural competency. Recommendations are offered for best practice strategies regarding the inclusion of LGBT cultural competencies in nursing orientation modules. Application of the findings may lead to positive social change if knowledgeable health care providers engage the LGBT population in primary care leading to improved health care outcomes.

LGBT affirming environments in hospice care settings

Gore, Maria 04 1900 (has links)
The documented experiences and perceptions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) patients receiving hospice or palliative care gives merit to the need for the implementation of LGBT affirming environments in hospice care settings. The guidelines for creating these affirming environments are described in this paper. Applying the Donabedian (1988) model of structure, process, and outcome this thesis project analyzes identified interventions relevant to the implementation of LGBT affirming environments in hospice care settings. Utilizing a formal PICO questioning method, a search strategy was devised and studies were identified based on established criteria. The results suggest that there is a paucity of data in relation to the implementation of LGBT affirming environments in hospice care settings. In an effort to assist in identifying existing interventions that have not been studied this project also includes a recommended survey tool to measure the active efforts of hospice organizations to implement LGBT affirming environments. / B.S.W. / Bachelors / Health and Public Affairs / Social Work

Mental Health, Identity and Coping Following Hate Crime Victimization

Wootten, Sarah 29 November 2012 (has links)
Previous research has explored the impact on individuals following hate crime victimization, including prevalence estimates in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender/transsexual (LGBT) community. Past research, however, has been limited in its scope when exploring the impact of the hate crime event on the overall mental health of the survivor often examining only one measure of functioning. The current project aims to fill this gap by analyzing measures of posttraumatic symptoms, depression, stress and dissociation, collected on a sample of 30 LGBT individuals who have experienced hate crime victimization. In addition to clinical features, this study also analysed identity, openness about LGBT identity and coping behaviours. Results indicated that social support, identity and coping impact recovery from hate crime victimization. The effect of these factors differed over time (within one month of the hate crime) and up to as much as five years later (within the month of the interview).

Confronting bias: How targets and allies can address prejudice against gay men in the workplace

Martinez, Larry 06 September 2012 (has links)
While many organizations have taken steps to protect minority individuals from the negative effects of prejudice and discrimination, such initiatives may be met with limited success. That is, prejudice and discrimination may remain major problems even with organizations who adopt organizational policies to enhance equity and reduce workplace discrimination. This dissertation examines the use of an individual-level strategy that individuals can enact in response to prejudice and/or discrimination, and that is the strategy of directly confronting the prejudice of their co-workers. This study examines the utility of confronting co-workers in the workplace with particular emphasis on the cognitions, attitudes, and behavioral intentions of third-party bystanders following witnessing a confrontation. I anticipated that the identity of the confronter (a member of the target group or an ally) and the level of conflict (high or low conflict) as well as the type of conflict (aggressive vs. calm, and personalized to the individual vs. generalized to society as a whole) in the confrontation would differentially impact outcome variables. Indeed, the results suggest that allies (versus targets) who confront elicit more positive behavioral intentions from observers to enact such strategies in the future; that high conflict (either aggressive or personalized) confrontations elicit more negative cognitions, attitudes, and behavioral intentions than do low conflict confrontations; and that targets and allies who confront have the most impact on third-party individuals if they utilize different strategies. Specifically, allies received particularly negative ratings when they confronted in an aggressive and personalized manner (compared to the other three strategies) and targets received relatively negative ratings only when confronting in an aggressive manner. These results held true in data obtained several weeks later. This research assesses the practicality of using confrontation as a prejudice-reduction tool and potentially informs future diversity management initiatives in organizations.
