Abstract [en]

The mobilisation of psychologists in Sweden working for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and queer (LGBTQ) wellbeing and rights has so far not succeeded in creating continuity despite several attempts to establish some kind of organisation since the mid 1990s. A new attempt was made in 2013 when the Swedish LGBTQ network for psychologists was formed following a formal decision at the congress of the Swedish Psychological Association. Even though the establishment of the network is still a work in progress, the network consists of approximately 100 members and seems to be growing. This paper describes some historical highlights from Swedish LGBTQ psychology, as well as how the network came about, underpinning perspectives and what the network aims to achieve.
