Restricted and Adaptive Masculine Gender Performance in White Gay College Men
Anderson-Martinez, Richard; Vianden, Jörg
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v51 n3 p286-297 2014
This article presents the results of a qualitative exploration of the performance of masculine gender identities in six gay male students enrolled at a master's comprehensive public institution in the Midwest. This article builds on the work of Laker and Davis (2011) and Rankin (2005). The findings indicate participants adapted their gender expressions to avoid harassment, discrimination, and physical harm, depending on their environment. Specific recommendations for college educators are offered.
