Holland, Christopher; Holley, Karri
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v48 n2 p179-194 2011
This study examined the experiences of gay male undergraduate students enrolled at a traditional women's college using the framework of queer theory. Using data collected from student interviews, journals, and document analysis, the findings offer insight into how institutional space as well as peer culture impact identity. The students reported the need to identify with peers across a range of individual characteristics. Conclusions and implications for practice are offered.
