    Gay males sometime have a difficult task embracing their inner identity. In life we transition through different phases starting with our primary reference of male identity which is conditioned by Paternal (male) parental impartations. However the family system can be disrupted due to an absentee father and maternal (feminine) roles traits are conditioned into a child by association. When males regardless of their sexual orientation are scrutinized for feminine traits there can be a process of self-rejection. In the gay lifestyle there is a huge glorification of HYPER MASULINE MEN Traits, particularly in men of color. Gay men will battle identity for a long time. Many may reject others who are perhaps reflective of who they internally battle and others many fully embrace the “REAL” them without conforming to what is idealized behavior. I struggled with conformity of behavior for many years. This battle of embracing myself and disregarding other’s opinion was similar to me coming out. After accepting your own individuality regardless of how feminine it maybe will be a liberating act, it takes time but self love is unparallel.
