Abstract

This cross-sectional quantitative study examined religious participation and religious identity salience in a nationally recruited sample of 428 Black men who have sex with men. Frequency analyses, X2 analyses, and multinomial logistic regression were used to assess levels of religious participation and religious identity salience and their sociodemographic correlates. Results indicated that Black men who have sex with men have low rates of religious participation but moderate to high levels of religious identity salience. Sexual orientation identity label, sexual attraction, denominational affiliation, and disclosure of sexual orientation to church members were found to be significant correlates of religious participation and identity salience. The implications of these findings for clinical practice with Black men who have sex with men are discussed.
