Searching note for GLBTI in PubMed: New Indexing Term, "Transgendered persons" (2013)

"Lesbian" maps to ("homosexuality, female"[MeSH Terms] OR ("homosexuality"[All Fields] AND "female"[All Fields]) OR "female homosexuality"[All Fields] OR "lesbian"[All Fields]). The mapped terms will then be bolded in the results.

"Gay" as a search term now maps to: "homosexuality, male"[MeSH Terms] OR ("homosexuality"[All Fields] AND "male"[All Fields]) OR "male homosexuality"[All Fields] OR "gay"[All Fields]. [All Fields] includes [Author].

    Search the MeSH database for other specific terms. "Intersex" is not  a MeSH Subject Heading, but "sex differentiation disorders" and "gender identity" are. "Transgendered persons" is  a new indexing term as of 2013; previous indexing: Transexualism (2001-2012).  "Transgender*" as a PubMed search term returns:" transgender[All Fields] OR transgendered[All Fields] OR transgenderism[All Fields] OR transgenderists[All Fields] OR transgenders[All Fields]".

    Utilize the "Also try:' box for more search options and view the Search details to see how the search was performed.
