Burlew, Larry D.; Serface, Holly C.
ADULTSPAN Journal, v5 n2 p81-90 Fall 2006
The authors argue that unlike their younger counterparts, who experience their young adult development within a dual-identity or bicultural framework, older, African American, gay men experience their development through 3 distinct cultural perspectives. Using a constructivist framework, the authors explore this tricultural development and make recommendations regarding counseling services for this population.
