a prestige or a stigma? Homosexuality - type of sexual relationship that prefers the
same gender. - such individuals is known as "gay" Vivienne Cass Model Stage 1: Sensitization This actually occurs before puberty. At this time, lesbians and gay males don't even see homosexuality as personally relevant. They're status isn't even a question. They do however "typically acquire social experiences during their childhood's that serve later as bases for seeing homosexuality as personally relevant, lending support to emerging perceptions of themselves as possibly homosexual (Troiden, pg. 42).” Stage 2: Identity Confusion In this stage, you are a confused person. You may ask yourself the questions, "Who am I?," "Am I homosexual?," "Am I heterosexual?" There are many factors that may contribute to one being "confused." Factors can include heterosexual and homosexual arousal and behavior, altered perceptions of self, and inaccurate information about homosexuals and homosexuality. Stage 3: Identity Assumption In this stage, the homosexual identity becomes a self-identity as well as a presented identity. "Defining the self as homosexual and presenting the self as homosexual to other homosexuals are the first stages in a larger process of identity disclosure called coming out (Troiden pg.50)." Stage 4: Commitment In this stage you are out and willing to live happily as
what you perceive yourself to be. Sociological Perspectives: Functionalist Conflict Interactionist "Coming out of the closet" Social Change - Secret Gays - Gay Activists The precipitating event for homosexual unity occurred at 3 A.M. on June 28, 1969, when police raided the Stonewall Inn of New York's Greenwich Village. But instead of dispersing, as homosexuals had always done in similar situations, the 200 homosexual patrons threw objects at the police and set fire to the bar. The riot lasted only 45 minutes, but it gave impetus to a number of collective efforts by gays to publicize police harassment of the gay community, job discrimination, and other indignities they faced. In effect, the Stonewall resistance came to symbolize the birth of the modern gay rights movement (Eitzen, 2000:303). Birth of
