This article discusses how the organisational literature on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) workplace issues has developed over the last three decades or so. It focuses on why LGBT workplace issues has not always received sustained scholarly attention it deserves, in particular noting the barriers that have impeded research in this area and the consequences of this in terms of current knowledge gaps. Equally, the article examines some of the major developments in scholarly research on LGBT workplace issues in recent years that centre on diversity and inclusion. Here, this article highlights how scholars have approached these issues from different and novel theoretical and empirical angles that signal new horizons for advancing organisational research on LGBT topics in the years to come.
