Abstract

Sexual minority youth are at increased risk for certain negative health outcomes compared to non-sexual minority counterparts. Some Hispanic cultural factors may cause parents to react negatively to sexual orientation disclosure. Few family-based interventions working with sexual minority youth and families exist, and no intervention has been developed that considers Hispanic cultural factors. Qualitative methodology was used to garner ideas about intervention development for Hispanic sexual minority youth and their families. Results indicate that health care providers, therapists, and educators can assist Hispanic sexual minority youth before and after sexual orientation disclosure to improve family functioning. In addition, intervention logistics and topics are discussed.
