The study, which is anchored on Tajfel’s Social Identity Theory (SIT) investigated the extent to which young Filipino gay men undertake the processes of group identification and intergroup evaluation. A total of 163 males (ages 15 to 24) who self-identify as gay comprised the sample. A questionnaire adapted from scales used in previous social identity studies provided quantitative data. Findings showed that Filipino gay youths expressed moderate levels of identification with their in-group; a good number expressed a sense of belonging and valued their membership in the social group. Moreover, the sample’s in-group (gay) was evaluated in significantly more favorable terms than their out-group (heterosexuals), thus confirming that SIT processes are at work among Filipino gay youths.
