Families are of critical importance for Latino communities in the United States. In this study we examined how familism shapes sexual-decision making regarding behavior and expressions of bisexuality among Latino youth. To accomplish this, we conducted 25 in-depth interviews and ethnographic observations in social environments of bisexual male and female youth 15—19 years of age for nine months February — OctoberNew York City.
We conducted a recurrent theme analysis together with the selection of case studies to illustrate key themes regarding familism and Latino teenage bisexuality. Our findings suggest that bisexual Latino youth valued closeness to their families by maintaining family ties, and seeking their emotional and material support.
The negative consequence for those who wanted to keep their bisexuality private is the constant surveillance of the family network. Familism is a complex construct that has a strong potential for providing insights into sexual health practices of bisexual Latino youth.
Families are critical elements in the protection and promotion of healthy behaviors among youth in the United States and globally Guilamo-Ramos et al One of the ways of conceptualizing this relationship between family ties and the health status of youth is through the construct of familism, i. It includes the attitudes, Latinos homosexual men playing basketball, and family structures operating within an extended family system and is believed to be one of the most important factors influencing the health practices of Latinos in the United States CooheyGil et al.
Individuals who report higher levels of familism are more likely to engage in healthy behaviors and less likely to practice risky ones. For example, the higher the level of familism, the lower the frequency of substance use among Latino adolescents and children Gil et al.
Higher levels of familism have been associated with higher self-esteem among Latino adolescents Bush et al. In spite of the positive aspects of familism as a factor promoting healthy behavior and reducing risk practices, familism has been also observed as a predictor Latinos homosexual men playing basketball maladjustment e.
Familism seems to have an impact in regulating the sexuality of individuals. Thus, it is important to view family as integral to the framework for understanding the behavior of individuals in collectivist societal groups. Regrettably this has rarely been examined among bisexual Latina o youth. Rafael Diazone of the pioneers in investigating the association between family and HIV risk, found that the strong ties within Latino families and the major role that families play in the care and support of Latino individuals can become a major source of conflict and tension for Latino gay and bisexuals men Diaz To our knowledge there are few studies that explore the role of familism in the sexuality and gender relations of bisexual Latinos homosexual men playing basketball female and male teenagers, a critical group with regards to sexual health issues.
In this study we examine how familism shapes sexual-decision making regarding behavior and expressions of bisexual Latino youth through a two year qualitative study in New York City. We included both youth who self-identified with a bisexual identity and those who were sexually active with both male and female partners but who did not have a bisexual identity. To qualify for this study the youth had to be of Latino ancestry. Individuals were eligible to participate in Latinos homosexual men playing basketball study whether they spoke English, Spanish or Portuguese however, there were no Portuguese speakers in the sample.
The diversity within Latino groups is important to acknowledge in the analysis of familism because variations by ethnicity, generation and kinship structure lead to different expressions of familism Luna et al. This cautions us from making broad generalizations about familism in a group as diverse as Latinos.
With these conceptual definitions in mind, the authors conducted a qualitative study with participants drawn from four predominantly Latino neighborhoods in the city of New York.
Within the spaces of these neighborhoods, flyers were distributed outside high schools, in collaboration with youth organizations and person-to-person outreach was conducted with key Latinos homosexual men playing basketball leaders in these communities. This recruitment strategy yielded a mostly second-generation Latino sample from a working-class background with high levels of education see Sample Characteristics section below.
The brief sexual histories consisted of an open-ended, in-depth interview of 60 to 90 minutes. Depending on the convenience of research participants, the interviews took place at community organizations, our university offices, or coffee shops. Consent procedures were not a barrier to the study for minors.

What elements of familism, the interdependence among nuclear and extended family members for support, emotional connectedness, familial honor, loyalty, and solidarity were depicted in the narratives? How was familism connected to the sexual histories and sexual-decision making of the youth in the study? The central Latinos homosexual men playing basketball was to identify common themes in answering our research questions Creswell We used a combination of open coding and selective coding.
The primary level Latinos homosexual men playing basketball coding by topics was conducted as soon as the interviews were transcribed and transferred into ATLAS. A second level of coding of the different meanings related to family and familism were conducted by data analysts in 4 steps: Once the codes were applied to the narrative data, the senior data analyst first author generated a report answering the general analytical tasks.
This was presented to the research team, who collectively discussed each of the analytical questions to assess the accuracy of the report and generate interpretations regarding the thematic codes of the data. Based on the above analyses we generated the analysis presented in this manuscript. Of a total of 58 Latino youth screened, 25 meet the above study criteria and consented to be part of the study. Of the young women, The age distribution of age at first sex was the same between young men and women, The rest of the youth Latinos homosexual men playing basketball their ethnic affiliation as mostly Spanish Caribbean with the exception of one Peruvian and two who reported dual Latino ethnic affiliations: All but three of the youth were born in the United States i.
The sample ranged from 15 to 19 years of age. The narrative of this transgender individual were included in our general analysis but not in the analysis presented below. The importance seems to emerge along two themes for the youth in the study: This seems consistent across all participants regardless of gender.
Summer barbeques and house parties with relatives and extended family with dancing and domino games were the scenes described by many of the youth as examples of their familial activities.
These examples were similar to those documented in other studies on Latino families Suarez-Orozco and Paez Household responsibilities are critical to the ways youth construct their masculinities and femininities Connell In our sample, gender played a role in the dynamics around household responsibilities. Several of the youth who lived with their mother s and father s stated that their parents assumed different gender roles in domestic chores, where the mother was in charge of indoor chores and the father of outdoor activities.
Chores were divided by gender among youth. Mothers, grandmothers and young women respondents often carried the burden of household responsibilities. For example, on the occasions that Jessie tried to help on outside tasks her uncle would say: You gotta learn how to keep a clean house, do your hair.

Stuff like that Jessie, Cuban and West-Caribbean, female, 15 years old. Young women carried a higher burden of household work as compared to young men, who self-reported low household chores and expressed that most of the household responsibilities were carried out by their mothers and sisters. Older youth in the sample had more responsibilities than younger ones.
Those siblings or respondents who were not doing well in school were assigned more responsibilities than those who were doing well in school. This complex system of chores not only means a form of social participation for the youth in the familial space Latinos homosexual men playing basketball suggests a mechanism of maintaining youth closer to the familial nucleus. A frequent theme within the answers from our respondents to the questions of being good daughters and sons was: The role of families in shaping the bisexuality of youth in the study became evident at the moment where they become sexually activity or start to define their sexual orientation.
In the following set of findings we examine how the familial space influenced the sexuality of bisexual youth. The first and most prominent theme in the interviews regarding family and their sexuality was related to their processes of defining their sexual orientation. Labels Latinos homosexual men playing basketball in the sample included: Annika and Tom illustrate the types of definitional processes that youth in our sample went through.
Annika realized a change in her view of her sexuality after experiencing a sexual interaction with a female classmate. When it was in high school my freshman year when my best friend was and we was trying to hook up and stuff like that, after that. It was weird it was just happening and it felt like I had no control for it. It was a state of mine because she was and it was pretty much happening Annika, Puerto Rican, female, 19 years old.
His self-definition was not the result of any particular sexual experience or emotional attraction. Developing a self-notion of Latinos homosexual men playing basketball seems to be accompanied by a clear awareness of the consequences of sexual labels. Hooking up with boys and girls is the new thing. Everybody wants to be bi. Everybody wants to be with a girl and a guy. Everybody has their own interpretation of what bi is. Establishing emotional relationships with both girls and boys, simultaneously or sequentially, were also common types of relationships that both male and female youth in the study follow.
These emotional and meaningful relations were problematic for the respondents in their familial space. Coming out as bisexual was a strategy that a group of the research participants opted to follow. I was, at first I told my mom at 13, through a letter she found and then I told them again I think at My father was at Well my mother took it a little bit more light, she, both of them thought it was a phase.
But yeah they definitely took it not lightly, they were mad Francisco, Peruvian, male, 19 years old. Negative reactions ranged from disappointment to asking the youth to leave the house, which was reported by both young men and women in the sample.
Being gay or lesbian, although heavily stigmatized was perceived to be less problematic for their families than being bisexual. Four of the youth in the sample left their Latinos homosexual men playing basketball.
Two of them returned while the other two stayed in the New York City shelter system. For one of the respondents, coming out as bisexual was facilitated by the fact that his mother came out as lesbian. Nonetheless, approximately half of the interviewees viewed their sexuality as their private, personal business not to be shared with their family.

Lucas, Dominican, male, years old. Youth who kept their bisexualities compartmentalized from their families were careful in not being observed, found or discovered in same-sex interactions or perceived Latinos homosexual men playing basketball. Another factor influencing youth to keep their bisexualities in secret was their religious familial background. Although not all of them attended religious services some of the families or their family members were active religious individuals.
Our data suggest that religiosity or identification with a religion were recurrent themes in the restriction or regulation of the bisexual practices of youth in the sample.
