Abstract:The purpose of this study was to explore how ethnic factors—such as traditional family values and cultural norms (both Asian and Western)—influence the coming out process and ethnic emergence among Asian gays and lesbians. This study also delves into other relevant factors pertaining to the Asian gay population, including ethnic identity and support networks. Qualitative interviews were conducted using an interviewing guide format. Twelve subjects were chosen through non-probability snowball sampling in the Los Angeles and Orange counties. All of the informants were Asian Americans who were originally from Malaysia, Vietnam, the Philippines, or China. This group stated that they were not likely to ever come out to their families. Most of these respondents had a strong support system ranging from families and friends to gay-oriented organizations. They felt comforted turning to these avenues when pressured or rejected by straight society.
