Abstract

While historically psychologists played a significant role in stigmatising non-heterosexuals through adopting a ‘pathological’ model of homosexuality, psychologists working in the field of psychology of sexualities today more typically seek to understand and challenge homophobia and heterosexism as well as promote positive well-being for non-heterosexuals.
