"I found that parents of African American, gay youth said: 'You have everything going against you as a black man. This is one more strike against you.' Conversely, parents of white, gay youth stated: 'You have everything going for you and now this,'" LaSala said.
A common reaction among the male relatives of the black, gay youth in the study was that, "The world already sees you as less than others. By being gay, you're further hurting the image of African American men," LaSala said.
He found that many black parents feel guilty when they learn their son is gay and that many black, gay youths distance themselves from their parents before they reveal that they're gay.
LaSala also found that black parents may be less likely than white parents to "mourn the loss of a normal life" for their gay sons. This may be because black parents understand that a "normal life" is less of a sure thing for their sons.
The study also revealed that many parents found that having a confidante with whom they could share their emotions helped them realize their sons' sexual orientation was not the result of faulty parenting, and that they risked losing their son if they could not accept his being gay.
