This special issue provides a diverse and fascinating snapshot of current international
work regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) health psychology. Individually, each constitutive article provides an in-depth
account of its own unique and engaging topic. The breadth of the articles presented, whilst simultaneously delivering a substantive contribution to several bodies of literature, is also worthy of studying in and of itself. This commentary draws upon critical ideas from surveillance medicine, and indeed an understanding of
the productive and constitutive power of research itself (Armstrong, 1983, 1995; Foucault, 1978). A useful, and partly reflexive, starting point for thinking broadly about LGBTQ health psychology is to examine the particular range and scope of the articles presented and the subjects and subjectivities constructed herein.
