Interracial Same-sex Couples: Negotiating the Role of Race in Relationships

Grants and Contracts Details


Abstract. The purpose of this study is to initiate an exploratory study of interracial same-sex couples' experiences of race in the negotiation of their relationships. Given the dearth of systematic inquiry into these relationships, we will collect and analyze in-depth qualitative data gathered from 16 interracial same-sex couples (8 female/8 male couples). Specifically, we will use the qualitative methodology developed and described in Rostosky et al 2004 which involves a systematic analysis of couples' conversations that are guided by a series of open-ended prompts that elicit rich textual data on lived experiences and phenomena. The results of this study will be disseminated at a national conference and in a peer-reviewed publication outlet. The results will also serve as pilot data for furthering future research for which we will be seeking grant funding.
