Developing an LGBT Studies Course

Hello all,

I am in the process of developing an "LGBT Psychology" course for my department. This would be an upper level undergraduate seminar. I have a mess of journal articles picked out that would be appropriate, but what are the preferred textbooks in this area? While I would be okay with sticking to just journals, including material that might seem more accessible to undergrads couldn't hurt.

If it would help guide any book suggestions, this is the list of topics that would definitely be covered (I am open to more ideas, too):
General issues of minority stress
Cultural variation in sexual orientation/identity
Negotiating religiosity and sexuality
Identity in the working world
Issues pertinent to gay men
Issues pertinent to lesbian women
Bisexual issues
Trans issues
Counseling with LGBT people

Thank you.
