Come Out, Whoever You Are! Coming Out and Identity Salience across the Life Course

Abstract:

The processes involved in coming out as lesbian, gay, or bisexual (LGB) include both private and public components which vary across the life course and within race, class, and gender. Using data from the Pew Research Center’s Survey of LGBT Adults, we consider how coming out privately and publicly affects identity salience within race, class, and gender demographics over the life course. Multinomial and ordinal logistic regression are used for analysis. Racial differences indicate a disconnect between the private acceptance and public disclosure of LGB identity, specifically between white and black respondents. LGB identity salience for those of college age suggest that this time is a formative time in identity maintenance. As for gender, women, relative to men, tend to come out at later ages, specifically when 30 or older. We find no evidence that the timing of coming out (private or public) matters with regards to LGB identity salience.
