Abstract

According to several media reports in February this year, the Indonesian Psychiatrists Association released a worrying statement about lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people and mental health. An article published in The Jakarta Post (Yosephine, 2016), claimed that “The leading Indonesian psychiatric body has classified homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenderism as mental disorders, which it says can be cured through proper treatment”. In response to these reports Professor Elizabeth Peel (Chair of the Psychology of Sexualities Section) worked with the BPS President to release a statement asserting that “The British Psychological Society (BPS) denounces the reported proposal by the Indonesian Psychiatrists’ Association to classify lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender sexual and gender identities (LGBT) as mental illnesses”. Publisher statement: ‘This is a pre-publication version of the following article: Jowett, A. (2016) Editorial: LGBTQ Psychology in a Globalised World: Taking a stand against homophobia, transphobia and biphobia internationally. Psychology of Sexualities Review , volume 7 (1).
