dc.description.abstractThere is currently a dearth in the research examining resiliency among self-identified Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and questioning youth. Demonstration of risk behaviors, mental illness, and negative peer interactions among sexual minority youth is highlighted in the current literature. These inherent risks in behavior, social interactions, and mental health are suggested to be much more pronounced in the GLB population when compared to the Straight or sexual majority population. This study examines the comparative resiliency attributes among the sexual majority and minority groups. By examining resiliency, risk is highlighted. Data from 111 sexual majority participants and 42 sexual minority participants were collected via an online survey. The results indicated no significant differences on internal or external measures of resiliency between the sexual majority and minority groups. Limitations and conclusions are discussed.
