  • Normative substance use antecedents among sexual minorities: A scoping
           review and synthesis.
    • Abstract: Although sexual minority stress remains the dominant perspective for understanding disproportionate substance use among lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) populations, social norms are among the most predictive and commonly targeted substance use antecedents in other high-risk groups. This scoping review seeks to bring clarity to the body of norms-focused alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) research conducted with LGBs over the past 20 years, identify intervention implications, and present priority directions for future research. Fifty-two peer-reviewed studies published between June 1999 and June 2019 were identified from searches of PubMed, PsycINFO, and Medline databases using combinations of terms related to: social norms; sexual orientation or sexual minority status; and, the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. A far greater number of studies focused on actual ATOD norms than perceived ATOD norms or discrepancies between actual or perceived norms, illuminating the need for additional research focused on these levels of analysis. Taken together, this literature suggests that: (a) perceived ATOD norms are reliable predictors of LGBs’ ATOD use; (b) actual ATOD use norms are low among LGBs participating in representative, population-based survey studies; and (c) LGBs overestimate the ATOD use of peers. Thus, intervention strategies including personalized normative feedback, psychoeducation, and social branding may hold promise in reducing LGBs substance use. However, additional research is needed to increase our understanding of injunctive ATOD norms, identify meaningful LGB reference groups, elucidate environmental influences on ATOD norms, and examine relationships between stigma experiences, perceived norms, and ATOD use.

  • Psychosocial mediators of the relations between sexual orientation and
           depressive symptoms in a longitudinal sample of young people.
    • Abstract: This longitudinal study investigated psychosocial mediators in the association between minority sexual orientation (e.g., identifying as lesbian, gay, or bisexual) and depressive symptoms in young people. Data from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) U.K. birth cohort were analyzed. Sexual orientation was assessed at 15 years, and depressive symptoms were assessed at 18 years. Mediators were assessed at 17 years: unhelpful assumptions (i.e., dysfunctional attitudes about the self and others), self-esteem, and family relationships were measured using four items. Multiple mediation analysis of 14,814 individuals utilized structural equation models estimated via full information maximum likelihood, with family relationships entered as a latent variable. Sex at birth was examined as a moderator. Sexual minority youth had higher risk for depressive symptoms at 18 years than heterosexual youth. They also had poorer relationships with their family and more unhelpful assumptions with weaker evidence for lower self-esteem, especially those who were male sex at birth. Poorer family relationships and unhelpful assumptions mediated the relation between sexual minority status and depressive symptoms, with weaker evidence for self-esteem as a mediator. There was no evidence to suggest that sex at birth moderated these relations. Poorer family relationships, more unhelpful self-beliefs, and possibly lower self-esteem may contribute to sexual orientation disparities in depressive symptoms, indicating possible areas for prevention and intervention.

  • Same-sex relationships of men with autism spectrum disorder in middle
           adulthood: An interpretative phenomenological study.
    • Abstract: Researchers have reported a higher incidence of same-sex attractions among individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) but little is known about the sexual and intimate relationships of these individuals. In this study, 5 men in middle adulthood with ASD who acknowledged attractions to other men were interviewed and the interviews were analyzed utilizing Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. Four themes were identified. First, these men want and have had intimate and sexual relationships, and there is considerable diversity in the types of relationships they have experienced. Second, they have experienced challenges to initiating and maintaining these relationships. Third, they have struggled with integrating their sexual and autism identities. Fourth, they have experienced insufficient support from professionals and their communities. This study contributes to dispelling the myth that individuals with ASD do not desire intimate-partner relationships or are unable to sustain them.

  • Real-time associations between discrimination and anxious and depressed
           mood among sexual and gender minorities: The moderating effects of
           lifetime victimization and identity concealment.
    • Abstract: Sexual and gender minorities (SGMs) experience higher rates of depression and anxiety, which are linked to higher rates of discrimination and victimization. SGM individuals may conceal their SGM identities to decrease discrimination and victimization exposure, yet these experiences still occur and concealment itself is often associated with greater anxiety and depression. However, it remains unclear whether lifetime victimization and identity concealment moderate the effect of day-to-day discrimination, which we evaluated in the current study using ecological momentary assessment (EMA). Fifty SGM participants (Mage = 21.82, SD = 4.70; 84% White) completed baseline assessment (e.g., concealment and lifetime victimization) followed by EMA of daily discrimination and anxious and depressed mood for 14 days. As hypothesized, daily discrimination predicted momentary increases in anxious and depressed mood, b = .34, p < .001. Notably, these effects were more pronounced among individuals who reported higher levels of identity concealment, b = .25, p < .001, and previous SGM-based victimization experiences (marginally), b = .18, p = .05. Main effects of cumulative lifetime victimization and identity concealment, measured at baseline, were associated with higher ratings of anxious and depressed mood over the 2-week study. While identity concealment may reduce exposure to discrimination and victimization, we found that concealment and prior victimization predict heightened reactivity to daily discrimination experiences. Additional research is needed to further explicate real-time effects of minority stress exposure, and to develop interventions that may mitigate risk among SGM individuals with prior victimization exposure and higher levels of identity concealment in particular.

  • Body image and cigarette smoking among sexual minority Latino men.
    • Abstract: Sexual minority (SM) Latino men, an understudied population, engage in high rates of cigarette smoking. Body image variables have been explored as a predictor of smoking among other populations; however, findings have been mixed. One explanation for these findings is the lack of testing interaction effects. Thus, the current study explored the interaction between midsection satisfaction and appearance investment in predicting smoking among this vulnerable group. In total, 151 SM Latino men in the San Diego area (M = 24.18 years old, SD = 3.19) completed an online study. Participants indicated the number of cigarettes they smoked per day, in addition to levels of appearance investment and midsection satisfaction. We created a binary variable: 10+ cigarettes/day versus fewer than 10 cigarettes/day. We then conducted a logistic regression model to test the interaction. A significant interaction between appearance investment and midsection satisfaction was revealed (OR = 2.97, 95% CI [1.35, 6.53], p < .01). Probing investment at low and high levels through simple slope analyses revealed that midsection satisfaction predicted higher odds of smoking 10+ cigarettes/day at high levels of investment (OR = 2.23, 95% CI [1.24, 3.99], p < .01) but not at low levels of investment. Possessing high investment in appearance in combination with high midsection satisfaction may serve as a risk factor for cigarette smoking among SM Latino men. Cognitive–behavioral techniques focused on reducing appearance investment may be effective in reducing smoking and its associated risks within this population.

  • Perceived boundary negotiations with former partners among queer
    • Abstract: Despite the large body of research on stepfamilies, research on stepfamilies headed by same-gender couples remains quite scant. Furthermore, research that does exist tends to examine only one member of the family (e.g., stepparent, stepchild). Little to no stepfamily research uses data from multiple stepfamily members to understand relational patterns among stepfamilies. This includes interactional patterns with prior partner(s) and the family as a whole, which research suggests are often prone to negative conflict. The present study uses grounded theoretical methodology to examine the boundary negotiation styles among 6 cisgender, same-gender headed stepfamilies. Data came from 3 sets of interviews per family: 6 family-level interviews with a total 22 participants, interviews with 10 participants in stepcouples, and interviews with the 12 focal children. At the time interviews were conducted, stepfamilies had engaged in both beneficial and hindering interactions to create family boundaries that were open, in negotiation, and closed. Families described interactions typically reported in the general stepfamily literature. However, these families also discussed unique experiences of heteronormativity and homophobia within these interactions. Findings suggest that future research should explore the variations among these stepfamilies. In addition to general recommendations for working with stepfamilies, practitioners should also engage the use of queer-affirmative counseling practices to combat experiences of homophobia in this process.

  • Rejecting equality: Psychological differences between Australian sexual
           minority men voting “yes,” voting “no,” or abstaining from voting
           on the legalization of same-sex marriage.
    • Abstract: In 2017, Australians voted on the legalization of same-sex marriage. Whereas most sexual minority individuals voted in support of same-sex marriage (“Yes”), some abstained from voting, and a small minority voted against same-sex marriage (“No”). The present study examined the psychological differences between these three groups in a sample of sexual minority men (N = 1,005). Participants completed a survey assessing their vote in the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey along with their internalized homonegativity, religiosity, political orientation, gay identification, and perceived discrimination. Results indicated that, relative to “Yes” voters, those who abstained from voting or voted “No” were higher in internalized homonegativity, higher in religiosity, more politically conservative, lower in gay identification, and perceived less discrimination. Implications of these results are discussed. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2020 APA, all rights reserved)

  • The Italian validation of the gender minority stress and resilience
    • Abstract: Transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) people experience high levels of minority stress and associated risk for negative mental health outcomes. Notwithstanding, TGNC people may resist the negative effects of minority stress on health through the resilience factors. As no comprehensive measures of gender minority stress and resilience exist in Italy, this study evaluated the psychometric characteristics of an Italian language version of the Gender and Minority Stress and Resilience Measure (GMSR) in an Italian sample of 203 TGNC individuals ranged from 18 to 66 years of age (M = 30.70, SD = 10.79). The GMSR, developed in the United States in 2015, assesses distal stressors (discrimination, rejection, victimization, and nonaffirmation), proximal stressors (internalized transphobia, negative expectations, and nondisclosure), and resilience factors (pride and community connectedness). Confirmatory factor analysis showed that the original 9-factor model had adequate fit to the data obtained from the Italian sample. Criterion validity was partially confirmed, as the stress scales positively correlated with anxiety and depression, and pride negatively correlated with depression, but not anxiety. On the contrary, community connectedness did not correlate with any of the mental health measures. Instead, both convergent and discriminant validity were confirmed as both distal and proximal stressors positively correlated with perceived stress, community connectedness was positively associated with perceived support from friends, and all correlations were below .60. This study offers evidence of the reliability and validity of the GMSR in the Italian context, providing Italian clinicians and researchers with a comprehensive tool to assess gender minority stress in TGNC individuals.

  • Investigating implicit and explicit attitudes toward sexual minorities in
    • Abstract: The attitudes, both implicit and explicit, that people hold toward sexual minorities and those who identify as gay or lesbian remain understudied, especially in Asia. In the present study, we examine the implicit and explicit attitudes people in Taiwan have regarding same-sex attraction. Participants (N = 1,696; 1,025 women; Mage: 24.36 years, SD = 5.40 years) completed implicit and explicit measures through the Project Implicit Taiwan website. Analyses revealed that participants, especially those who identified as gay or lesbian, demonstrated positive implicit attitudes toward gay men and lesbian women. Participants’ reported attitudes toward heterosexual as well as gay and lesbian individuals were related to their own gender and sexuality. In particular, participants showed the strongest preference for members of their target sexuality category (e.g., heterosexual men toward heterosexual women). Women were more positive than men toward gay and lesbian individuals. Participants were supportive of same-sex marriage, although this support was stronger among women and gay men; participants’ explicit and implicit attitudes also impacted the degree to which they supported same-sex marriage. Our findings represent an initial investigation into the current attitudes people hold toward same-sex attraction and related societal issues, in Taiwan and potentially in the broader Asia region.

  • Minority stress in nonbinary students in higher education: The role of
           campus climate and belongingness.
    • Abstract: Increasing numbers of studies have begun to focus on minority stress within transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming (TNG) populations. These studies indicate a strong positive relationship between minority stress and increased mental health concerns. However, little research has been conducted on nonbinary students enrolled in institutions of higher education, despite a growing number of young adults and emerging adults identifying with this label. The current study sought to fill this gap by understanding minority stress among nonbinary students in higher education. The sample included nonbinary students (N = 380), who filled out measures that focused on the impact of minority stress experiences, perceived institutional climate, and sense of belonging. The participants in this study reported higher levels of minority stress compared with sexual and gender minority samples using similar measures. A hierarchical linear regression was conducted to test direct relationships among the constructs. The findings revealed that nonbinary students who did not feel as though they belonged on campus or felt that the climate was positive reported more of an impact of minority stress than those who reported more belongingness and a better climate. These results signify the importance of attending to belongingness and climate when considering ways that institutions of higher education can better welcome and nurture nonbinary individuals. Thus, higher education campuses should include training and programming that focus on nonbinary students to ensure smooth transitions and healthy educational environments.

  • Relationships between transgender congruence, gender identity rumination,
           and self-esteem in transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals.
    • Abstract: The present study investigated the association between transgender congruence and self-esteem in transgender and gender-nonconforming (TGNC) individuals and whether rumination about gender identity atemporally meditates this relationship. In a cross-sectional study, 323 TGNC individuals completed an online survey measuring the 2 factors of transgender congruence (i.e., appearance congruence and gender identity acceptance), rumination about gender identity, and self-esteem. Data were analyzed using a mediation analysis with gender identity acceptance and appearance congruence as predictors, rumination about gender identity as mediator, and self-esteem as outcome. The results revealed positive associations between both factors of transgender congruence and self-esteem. Furthermore, it was found that these relationships were partially atemporally mediated by rumination about gender identity. More specifically, higher levels of appearance congruence and gender identity acceptance were associated with higher levels of self-esteem through less rumination about gender identity. These results suggest that transgender congruence and rumination about gender identity are factors that can be addressed in clinical settings to increase self-esteem and other components of mental health in TGNC individuals.
