Lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) students become engaged in a number of leadership opportunities that may have an effect on how they view their sexual orientation. This qualitative study asked lesbian, gay, and bisexual students their perceptions of how their non-LGBT leadership experiences affected their sexual identity. The data was analyzed using an interpretivist process seeking themes that might contribute to a better understanding of leadership identity development for LGB students. Emerging themes suggested a correlation between sexual identity development and leadership identity development.
