To conclude the section, this chapter will discuss the overlap between ethnic identity formation and sexual identity development. According to Rust (2003), the coming out process for multicultural individuals involves combining their ethnic and sexual identities. While there appears to be a plethora of literature regarding sexual identity development and ethnic identity formation (Chan, 1989; Coyle & Rafalin, 2000; Meyer & Schwitzer, 1999; Phellas, 2005; Savin-Williams, 2001, 2005), there is a lack of literature that recognizes the intersection between gender, class, age demographics, and identity development processes (Jamil, Harper, & Fernandez, 2009; Parks, Hughes, & Matthews, 2004; Rust, 1996; Sodhi & Glickman, 2012, 2013).
