Abstract

This paper explores the relationship between ethnic, gender, and sexual identities among Latinos/as from a developmental perspective. Culturally prescribed gender roles are explored and lack of support from the indigenous communities are discussed as oppressive factors that inhibit a healthier integration of both ethnic and sexual identities. The role social workers can play in facilitating the integration of these identities and other recommendations are provided within a culturally grounded approach.
