This chapter uses Arnett’s (2000, 2004, 2006a) conception of emergent adulthood as a framework for studying young adulthood among same-sex-attracted men and women. Social change has fostered a delay for many young adults in making the transition from adolescence to settled adulthood. Arnett has termed this new phase in the course of life “emergent adulthood,” a time between adolescence and self-reliant adulthood.

Keywords:   young adulthood, gays, lesbians, homosexuals, social change, delayed development, adolescence, Arnett
