Spiritual Borderlands: A Black Gay Male College Student's Spiritual Journey
Means, Darris R.; Jaeger, Audrey J.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v52 n1 p11-23 2015
This case study explored the spiritual journey and spaces of one Black gay male college student. Data collection included semi-structured interviews, field observations, and photovoice. Findings indicate that the student experienced tension during his spiritual journey because of his racial and sexual orientation identities but was able to reconcile his multiple identities through family support, developing a personal relationship with a higher power, and finding spiritual spaces where all his identities were embraced.
