If you asked the average man on the street whether he could tell the difference between a gay man and a straight man, he'd probably say yes, citing a of reasons such as differing fashion or music tastes, cultural references and mannerisms. He may even suggest that gay men behave in a more feminine manner. And, on hearing that, many gay men would be very offended.
Recent literature has described the phenomenon of "straight-acting" gay men: gay men who identify with traditional heteronormative masculinity. The current study examined predictors of "straight-acting" identification in gay men and how identifying as straight-acting relates to well-being. A path analysis assessed how these variables related to straight-acting identification.
While masculine self-presentation positively predicted well-being and internalized homophobia negatively predicted well-being, straight-acting identification, which positively correlated with both, did not independently predict either psychological distress or physical well-being. Analyses further suggested that internalized homophobia had particularly deleterious effects among gay men who were more feminine.
Implications for clinical and public health interventions among gay men are discussed.
Why do some gay men identify as "straight-acting" and how is it related to well-being?
