Abstract/Summary

Past experiences as a catalyst to gay development.

Gay identity has been explored on the different fields of social sciences. This was supported by Cass (1979) who stated that being gay can be partially explained through their childhood developmental processes and through their environment. However, past researchers were unable to tackle personal narratives from gay men and their past experiences, which can help further explain how it contributes to forming sexuality. Through thematic analysis, the current study explored the personal narratives of Filipino gay men agreed 18-22. Experiences with family, nonfamilial experiences, and experiences with doing opposite sex activites transpired to be significant past experiences that contributed to the development of the said participants' gay identity. Peers depict a great impact on gay identity development but there are other experiences to be considered with or without its influence. This appears to be new information considering that literature indicates that peers is a sole contributor to the development of gay identity.
