Internalized Homophobia: The Next LGBT Movement After Same-Sex Marriage
Filmmaker David Thorpe is producing a film called Do I Sound Gay?, which aims to de-stigmatize the stereotypes surrounding men with “gay”-sounding voices. And while progress for LGBT equality has undoubtably been made since his childhood, he says, there are still plenty of issues left unaddressed. One in particular: internalized homophobia. Definitions vary between therapists, but it generally refers to the internalization of a society’s homophobic attitudes within lesbian, gay or bisexual people. Researchers say it can correlate with a number of psychological and medical outcomes, including depression, shame, substance abuse and dangerous sexual behaviors.
