This phenomenological research explored the lived adventure of homosexual males. The
study of id in scholar affairs and better edu cation is grounded in scholar and
human improvement concept. Does thought clarify id for homosexual males? How do homosexual
men make that means in their adventure? This research is performed within the culture of
hermeneutic phenomenology. this system is predicated within the w ork of Heidegger,
Gadamer, Ricoeur, Derrida, Levinas, and Sartre as key philosophers in
phenomenological inquiry. even if those philosophers floor the method, van
Manen deals the set of study actions that come jointly and provide how you can set up

Through exploration of existential resources, the subjects of being an imposter in
majority tradition, residing a double lifestyles, the facility of phrases to harm or attach, and the
notion of “the closet” emerged. as soon as those themesfrom the existential resources have been
uncovered, individuals who dwell the phenomenon lower than research have been sought.
Working with six students, I appeared deeper into how the phenomenon
manifests itself and the way homosexual males make which means in their lived event. The subject matter of
identity emerged as paramount. in particular, the homosexual males engaging during this examine
describe their identification as either complex and, from time to time, ineffable; they knew who they
were, yet came across theoretical descriptions of them restricted andlimiting. homosexual males additionally locate

make with others –sometimes being homosexual hinders, and at different instances it is helping make
From my paintings with those males, I recommend to educators that we have to remain
attuned to the pedagogical setting, permit homosexual position versions to be to be had, and
educate destiny lecturers in regards to the power crises and anxieties confronted via homosexual males in
middle and highschool as a result of bullying. eventually, I recommend to people who train

fully describe humans. the worry i've got is with the over program of concept
in position of hearing and interesting with scholars.
