The Effects of Traditional Family Values on the Coming Out Process of Gay Male Adolescents.Newman, Bernie Sue; Muzzonigro, Peter Gerard
Abstract: Findings from 27 gay male adolescents revealed that most respondents reported feeling different from other boys as children. Average age of first crush on another boy was 12.7 years; average age for realizing they were gay was 12.5 years. Traditional family values played greater role in predicting coming out experiences than did race. (Author/NB)
