The aim of this study is to validate the Italian version of the Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Positive Identity Measure (LGB-PIM), developed by Riggle and colleagues (2014). The LGB-PIM evaluate positive LGB identity in sexual minorities through five dimensions: self-awareness, authenticity, community, intimacy, and social justice. The instrument was administered to 429 participants (129 lesbians; 179 gay males; 121 bisexuals), aged from 18 to 57 years (M = 27.20; DS = 7.26). Each dimension has high reliability, and factor analysis confirmed the five-factor structure, as found in the original study. The instrument demonstrated good psychometric properties although further validation studies are required.

Abstract

The aim of this study is to validate the Italian version of the Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Positive Identity Measure (LGB-PIM), developed by Riggle and colleagues (2014). The LGB-PIM evaluate positive LGB identity in sexual minorities through five dimensions: self-awareness, authenticity, community, intimacy, and social justice. The instrument was administered to 429 participants (129 lesbians; 179 gay males; 121 bisexuals), aged from 18 to 57 years (M = 27.20; DS = 7.26). Each dimension has high reliability, and factor analysis confirmed the five-factor structure, as found in the original study. The instrument demonstrated good psychometric properties although further validation studies are required.
