Document Type

Conference Proceeding

Publication Date



This paper explores how two frameworks, transformative learning and a model of sexual orientation and identity journeys, may be integrated to understand the experiences of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered (GLBT) adults who come out in their adult years (25+). Building on research that examines the interrelationships between women's sexual identity and transformative learning this paper explores both models and proposes a synthesis for further discussion.
