Abstract

Abstract:

Over the past decade, progress among LGBT Americans has been impressive. However, are all subgroups experiencing that process equally? More specifically, for example, how connected to the larger/majority (white) LGBT community do Latinx LGBTs feel? Using a national sample of LGBT Latinx people (N=1,159), this article examines the relative importance of a variety of characteristics in understanding connectedness to the larger LGBT community. Hierarchical regression modeling reveals that racial salience and comfort in the LGBT community, LGBT activism, sexual orientation identity, nativity, and city residency all have a significant impact. The implications of these findings are discussed regarding future research with Latinx LGBT populations.
