    Abstract

    This introductory essay briefly describes each of the manuscripts in this volume. It then delineates and describes themes that cut across these works. These themes include: the usefulness of the ecological framework for research with GLBT populations; the necessity for greater complexity in the conceptualization of research with these populations; the need for more inclusive and representative samples; the need to protect GLBT research participants and ways in which this can be accomplished; the usefulness and importance of using inclusive research methods; the advantages and limitations of the insider perspective when conducting research on GLBT populations; and ways in which research with these populations can be used. It concludes with a call for research that addresses the difficult and potentially controversial issues facing GLBT populations.
