Abstract

The current article discusses results from a qualitative case study that examines the experiences of lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) servicemembers in higher education.  The purpose of the study was to examine the institutional supports and constraints experienced by LGB-identified, active duty military service members during their undergraduate enrollment.  Findings are discussed under three themes related to experiences related to LGB identity, experiences related to military status, and the intersection of the experiences between LGB and military status.  Implications for supporting military-affiliated LGB students in higher education are also discussed.
