Letter from the Editor
Thank you for your interest in the Journal of LGBT Issues in Counseling, the national, peer-reviewed journal of SAIGE, a division of the American Counseling Association. The Journal is distributed quarterly by Taylor & Francis.
What makes our journal unique is its primary focus on cutting-edge empirical research, best practices, and emerging trends and issues focused on counseling the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, ally, pansexual, or other affectional and gender expansive communities at all developmental stages of life.
We publish articles focused on content areas that have direct counseling implications for members of our queer and trans communities in settings that represent the diverse contexts in which our readers work including schools, mental health agencies, colleges and universities, substance abuse treatment facilities, the criminal justice system, religious organizations, private practices, and medical centers.
Although all submitted manuscripts will be assessed for appropriateness and considered for publication, we especially encourage submissions from clinicians working in the field, educators conducting cutting edge research, and collaborations between educators and graduate students.
We hope you find the Journal valuable.

Guidelines for Authors
The Journal of LGBT Issues in Counseling publishes articles focused on issues and concerns related to the mental health and well being of LGBTGEQIAP+ individuals, families, and communities. The intent is to offer a variety of ideas and perspectives for counselors and related professionals who work with LGBTGEQIAP+ people, their families, and communities. As such, submitted articles should focus on one of the following areas:
Articles within this focus represent qualitative and/or quantitative studies that contribute new understanding to the fields of counseling and/or counselor education as it relates to LGBTGEQIAP+ people. These manuscripts should include an introduction, review of the literature, methodology, data analyses, results, and discussion. Implicit in these are clear descriptions of the studies purpose and implications for counseling, counselor training, and future research.
Articles within this focus represent ways of approaching counseling, counselor education, training, supervision, or program design that reflect new ideas or innovative approaches that are grounded in counseling theory and/or research.
Submissions in this focus represent original thinking related to the theory and practice of counseling. These might include a review of the literature, which critiques and integrates previously stated ideas; a presentation of new theoretical perspectives, or perhaps addressing a new way of utilizing previously published work.
The Journal of LGBT Issues in Counseling expects authors to follow the most current ACA Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. Further publication information for authors can be found at https://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=wlco20&page=instructions.
