Sexual Orientation: Perceptions, Discrimination and Acceptance


Frances Earley (Editor)

Series: Human Sexuality
BISAC: SOC032000

This book reviews research studies on the perceptions, discrimination and acceptance based on sexual orientation. The first chapter begins with an overview of social reaction, etiological perceptions and spiritual perspectives in LGBTQ Mormons. Chapter Two studies an attempt to integrate theoretical models and provides a review of the empirical evidence of impression formation of applicants differing in sexual orientation. Chapter Three compares the mental health of those who live in neighborhoods with relatively high concentrations of sexual minorities to that of those who live in neighborhoods with relatively low concentrations. Chapter Four tests the initiation of a self-regulatory cycle for avoidance of future homonegative behavior. (Imprint: Nova)
