Rushton, A., Gray, L., Canty, J., et al. (2019). Beyond Binary: (Re)Defining “Gender” for 21st Century Disaster Risk Reduction Research, Policy, and Practice. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. 16(20):3984.
The authors of this review searched Scopus and MEDLINE to understand the literature around LGBTQ+ people and gender minorities in disasters. They found only 12 articles on disaster risk reduction that included discussion of gender diversity or nonbinary individuals. The authors recommend that researchers and practitioners working on disasters use inclusive terminology, recognize that the gender binary does not encompass all individuals, and acknowledge that a more expansive conception of gender should be used.
