Abstract or Summary
  • This research investigates the experiences of female allies of gay men and lesbians. A naturalistic and grounded theory paradigm is employed in this qualitative study. The participants are five female allies of gay men and lesbians from the Southeastern region of the United States. The participants share their experiences as allies of gay men and lesbians during two in-depth interviews. Semi-structured interview questions developed by the researcher provide the format for the interviews. Interviews are tape recorded and transcribed. Concepts and themes emerge from initial interviews, which then guide the second set of interviews. Data is coded according to the themes that emerge. Findings reveal the following themes: (1) Way of Being; (2) Awareness; (3) Commitment; and (4) Integration. This study has implications for female allies of gay men and lesbians, and further implications for prejudice reduction and social justice.
