Statement of the Problem: In a group of Latino gay men the factors that influence self-perception were examined. Design and Methods: The study was a secondary analysis of a cross-sectional study of several groups of Latino gay men. The sample consisted of 28 men who self-identified as Latino and gay. The secondary analysis was driven by several questions that sought to identify issues that influenced the participants understanding of themselves as Latino gay men. The data was coded using the coding system developed by Glaser and Strauss (1967) and Strauss and Corbin (1990, 1998). Summary and Interpretation of Findings: A model entitled A Model of Influences of Family and Community Factors on Latino Gay Men Self-Perceptions was constructed. The lives of this group of Latino gay men were influenced by three factors or expectations: cultural-familial, gender and religious. These factors coupled with homosexuality affected the lives of the men who participated in the study. The clash between homosexuality and cultural-familial, gender and religious expectations led to either alienation from family and community or to confronting familial or community homophobia.
