Committee: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Philosophers

Committee Charge

The committee is charged with assessing and reporting on the status of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in the profession. Its main responsibilities are to identify unfair or discriminatory practices affecting LGBT philosophers in their professional work and to apprise the board and members of the association of ways in which such practices may be rectified; to inform LGBT philosophers concerning means of overcoming discrimination that they may encounter in the profession; and to make reports and recommendations to the board concerning ways in which full and meaningful equality of opportunity can be provided to all individuals who seek to study, teach, or conduct research in philosophy. The committee is also concerned with teaching and research. It seeks to facilitate an understanding of and investigation into issues of sexuality, diversity in affectional preference or orientation, sexual identity, and the range of positions represented in theories about LGBT people.

The committee also publishes the Newsletter on LGBT Issues in Philosophy, the editor of which serves in an ex officio capacity on the committee.
