Sexual Identity Development among Ethnic Sexual-Minority Male Youths.
Dube, Eric M.; Savin-Williams, Ritch C.
Developmental Psychology, v35 n6 p1389-98 Nov 1999
This study explored how ethnicity influenced sexual identity development in 139 sexual-minority males. Findings demonstrated that participants, regardless of ethnicity, experienced most identity milestones at developmentally appropriate ages, had moderately low internalized homophobia, and became romantically and sexually involved with other males during adolescence. Ethnic differences were found in timing, disclosure to family members, and involvement with females. (Author/KB)
