Summary
The purpose of this paper is to understand how living in the western context of Auckland has had an impact on Chinese gay mens' sexual identity. In-depth interviews were conducted with six Chinese men who self-identified as gay. They have been living in New Zealand between 2 to 5 years. This research was underpinned by life course theory to understand the process of sexual identity development, the relationship to the environment, and personal choices. The importance of traditional Confucian values and influences of the collective society emerged in the interviews as central themes. These factors all have significant impact on ttheir sexual identity development and associated behaviours. Linked with identity development are mental health and possible risk taking behaviours -- Abstract
