Nonbinary gender identities are prominent among gender diverse youth, having increased significantly over the last decade. Leading theories in support of gender diversity argue that greater acceptance, the availability of more descriptive and inclusive language, and diverse sociocultural forces are behind the apparent rise in transgender youth. Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health is inviting submissions for a special issue on Understanding Nonbinary and Gender Diverse Youth. Articles should focus on attempts to deepen our understanding of non-binary gender identity, and we welcome manuscripts of diverse methods including quantitative and qualitative clinical research, as well as systematic approaches to reviews. We also encourage submissions from gender diverse researchers whose personal experiences provide invaluable insights in the study of this area. Interested authors are welcome to reach out to the guest editor, Dr. Jame Agapoff (they/them), at JAgapoff@dop.hawaii.edu, to propose a manuscript and receive some initial input on suitability for this special issue. Submissions will be considered through June 2024.
