Strayhorn, T. L., & Mullins, T. G. (2012). Investigating Black Gay Male Undergraduates’ Experiences in Campus Residence Halls. Journal of College and University Student Housing, 39(1), 140.

Several sources of support and recommendations for improving educational practice are highlighted. (Contains 1 table and 1 footnote.)
