Abstract

Multicultural theorists argue that identity development theories fail to capture experiences of ethnic and sexual minorities. This study represents a preliminary investigation into patterns of identification, values, attitudes, behaviors, and sense of belonging of LGBTQ+ ethnic minorities. Ninety-three ethnic minority and LGBTQ+ adults (Mage = 25.34; SD= 8.08) completed an online survey including a Q-sort task. The Q-sort yielded four distinct groups distinguished by unique patterns of endorsement of behaviors and attitudes about their ethnic and sexual/gender identities and communities. The patterns indicated varying levels of integration vs. marginalization within their ethnic communities and the LGBTQ+ community, respectively.
