Current work has described unique stressors connected with racial/ethnic, sex, intimate identification, and age statuses in LGB grownups. African United states and Latino LGB individuals face stressors pertaining to alienation from their racial/ethnic identification in the LGB community, stigmatization of minority sexual identification within racial/ethnic minority communities, and stressors associated with sexual prejudice that affect all LGB individuals (Diaz et al., 2001; Espin, 1993; Greene, 2000; Meyer, Schwartz, & Frost, 2008). Of their racial/ethnic communities, for instance, African United states and Latino LGB people deal with anti homosexual and old-fashioned household values that stress someone’s main allegiance to nuclear and extensive members of the family and that view marriage as limited by heterosexual unions (Munoz Laboy, 2008; Adams & Kimmel, 1997).
