Hearing Minority Voices Institutional Discrimination Towards LGBTQ in Disaster and Recovery
King, D. (2022). Hearing Minority Voices: Institutional Discrimination Towards LGBTQ in Disaster and Recovery. Journal of Extreme Events. 8(4).
In this literature review, the author provides an overview of the vulnerability and resilience of the LGBTQ community and explains how they have either been neglected or heterogenized in emergency management messages. Themes in literature (e.g., diversity, discrimination, service provision and health needs, and inequality) are covered and this is followed by a longer description of the concept of privacy and trust during and after a disaster. The rest of the paper covers issues associated with faith-based organizations and suggestions for improving messaging and overall inclusion.
