There is a significant gap in the literature when examining the experiences and identity development of LGBTQ community college students. This research seeks to close this gap by examining the experience of LGBTQ alumni from a community college. The literature review consists of a review of the history of community colleges, an overview of community college student demographics, and a brief overview of student identity development and LGBTQ identity development theories. This research was conducted using qualitative methods based in narrative research, and the feminist perspective. Data collection methods included a series of three interviews with three participants and a document analysis of public material such as admissions brochures and college catalogues.
