Abstract
The objective of this study is to illuminate how college students who self-identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community partake in casual sex or hookups as a tool for identity formation during their coming-out process. This research challenges the assumption of casual sex as a tool of gender-based violence, instead pushing for a more positive understanding of casual sex as a space for learning about oneself and negotiating boundaries. Furthermore, this research aims to destigmatize queer sex and expand our understanding past harm reduction, instead working towards understanding how to best support queer students during their time in college so that they are comfortable in their identity and sexually literate upon graduation.
