Critical Influences On Sexual Minority College Males' Meaning-Making Of Their Multiple Identities, Daniel Tillapaugh Feb 2015

Critical Influences On Sexual Minority College Males' Meaning-Making Of Their Multiple Identities, Daniel Tillapaugh

Daniel Tillapaugh

This grounded theory study explored the critical influences on college sexual minority males’ meaning-making of their multiple identities. Twenty-six cisgender males attending colleges and universities within the United States and Canada were interviewed and provided journal responses to specific prompts. Four themes emerged, including: involvement in LGBT-affirming spaces, intimate relationships with other males, involvement in student leadership positions, and ongoing exposure to heterosexism and homophobia.
