LGBT elders and the criminal justice system [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
This chapter explores LGBT elders with histories of incarceration. Due to the paucity of the literature available on this population, this chapter provides new data from a qualitative study of ten formerly incarcerated LGBT elders' experiences prior to, during, and after release from prison. Consistent with intersectionality theory, a core theme of self and the social mirror emerged from the data that represented LGBT elders' ongoing coming out process of unearthing their 'true selves' despite managing multiple intersectional stigmatized identities, such as being LGBT, elderly, HIV positive. Reverse order, a member of a racial/ethnic minority, and being formerly incarcerated. These exploratory findings further our awareness of an overlooked population of LGBT elders involved in the criminal justice system. The implications for interprofessional and interdisciplinary policy and practice that incorporate suggestions from the formerly incarcerated LGBT elders for systemic reform are presented.
