Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to empirically investigate the sexual identity disclosure among African American and Latina Same-sex attracted women. Unlike previous work in the area, this paper pays greater attention to the relationship between sexual identity acceptance and disclosure, as well how internal and external factors predict sexual identity disclosure. Using quantitative survey data collected from self-identified African American and Latina same-sex attracted women, the author examines the relationship between sexual identity acceptance (internalized homophobia) and sexual identity disclosure, and self-reports of sexual identity disclosure. Lastly, the author employs multiple regression analysis to understand the affect of self-efficacy and social support on sexual identity disclosure. Results indicate a significant positive relationship between sexual identity disclosure and sexual identity acceptance. As well, African American and Latina same-sex attracted women in the study report high levels of sexual identity disclosure. The findings highlight the need for researchers to consider how social-environmental context contribute to positive outcomes (sexual identity disclosure) among African American and Latina same-sex attracted women.
