A Heuristic Self-Inquiry of Racial Effects in GBT Male Partnerships

Humankind inhabits much of the Earth, extending into a variety of regions, races, and cultures. This fact alone creates an imperative to attend the needs and struggles for many. However, this inquiry intends to focus on and address the question: What is the experience of “GBT men of color” in romantic partnerships? This study is prefaced by literature review on GBT men self-identity, relationships, attraction, and racial factors. The raw data of this study includes the researcher’s own created images and written personal reflection. The data is summarized though a creative synthesis in the form of a metaphoric narrative, accompanied by a discussion of the implications, findings, and possible future directions of the research.
