THE COLOR OF THE RAINBOW PATH: AN EXAMINATION OF THE INTERSECTION OF RACIST AND HOMOPHOBIC BULLYING IN U.S. HIGHER EDUCATION
Recent reports of bullying in postsecondary education show that there have been an increasing number of incidents of bullying. Although previous studies focused on bullying in general, the intersectionality of various types of bullying has not been extensively examined yet in postsecondary education. The purpose of this narrative inquiry was to understand how racist homophobic bullying influenced gay male faculty of color in higher education in the United States. This article focuses on two themes, relational marginalization and positional stigmatization, and concludes with discussions and implications for practicing anti-bullyism to protect sexual minorities of color in higher education.
