A Glimpse of Family Acceptance for Queer Hmong Youth
Ngo, Bic; Kwon, Melissa
Journal of LGBT Youth, v12 n2 p212-231 2015
This article draws on in-depth qualitative interviews with two queer Hmong immigrant youth to explore experiences of family care, support, and acceptance. It offers an alternative to discourses of family rejection. It illustrates the ways in which Hmong youth are constructing queer identities while maintaining close relationships to blood family. Ultimately, it suggests that for queer Hmong American youth, identity negotiations are perhaps less about an outward journey of self-realization and more about an interpersonal journey where "going home" is possible and paramount.
