Overview

This quantitative study on social anxiety and gay men explored gay male identity development and social anxiety in attempt to understand the degree and prevalence of social anxiety in this population. The literature review focused on the relevant history of homosexuality, gay identity development and social anxiety. Participants were administered an online questionnaire which included three separate tools to evaluate social anxiety, level of gay identity development and level of introversion. Two hundred sixty completed surveys were analyzed to fill in the gap of research focusing specifically on the impact of social anxiety on gay men. Participants represented 36 states, 81% were Caucasian and the average age was 37 years old. The main findings of this study indicated that gay men are significantly more socially anxious than heterosexual men. A significant correlation was found between gay identity and social anxiety, however, introversion was not found to be correlated with social anxiety in gay men. Finally, an analysis of demographic variables did not yield any correlation with levels of social anxiety.
