Social Support In Childhood For Gay Men

Compared to heterosexual men and women, gay men receive no support during childhood about how to meet and connect with other gay men.

Parents, siblings, friends and teachers are not involved in guiding gay men during first experiences of meeting gay friends, lovers, and sexual partners.

Gay men are left on their own to figure out how relationships work.  Lack of support and absence of role models is the main cause for relationship struggles for most gay men.
