Call for Proposals

Journal of LGBT Issues in Counseling
Special Issue:
Charting the Course of Ally Development Across Counseling, Education, and Advocacy

The Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Issues in Counseling (ALGBTIC), a division of the American Counseling Association (ACA), is inviting submissions for the upcoming Special Issue of The Journal of LGBT Issues in Counseling.  The focus of this issue is Charting the Course of Ally Development Across Counseling, Education, and Advocacy.  The deadline for initial submission is May 15th, 2014.  The intent of this journal is to publish articles relevant to working with a diversity of affectional orientations, gender expressions and gender identities that will be of interest to counselors, counselor educators, and other counseling related professionals who work in schools, mental health settings, family agencies, and colleges/universities. 

This journal welcomes the submission of articles that focus in one of the following areas: (1) new research in the field of counseling, (2) introduction of new/innovative practices within the counseling field, or (3) theoretical or conceptual pieces, including reviews of the literature, that reflect new ideas or new ways of integrating previously-held ideas.  For this issue particular attention will be paid to submissions that focus on the development of allies in the noted environments, what that development is comprised of, and advocacy through allies for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex and Ally (LGBTQQIA) community as a whole. The co-editors are especially interested in manuscripts that explore these ideas through a multidimensional lens of intersectionality (convergence of diverse identities).  The journal is published quarterly by Taylor & Francis. 

For detailed submission guidelines please contact Ned Farley, Ph.D., Editor, The Journal of LGBT Issues in Counseling,

Special Issue Co-Editors:
