Studies on gay boys predominate, so young lesbians are more of a mystery. Pioneering findings suggest lesbian teens may be different from gay boys in key ways. There's more variability in the age when they realize they're not straight, says Lisa Diamond, a University of Utah psychologist. Unlike boys, most girls also have opposite-sex attractions. And strong emotional bonds are more key in sparking girls' sexual attractions, Diamond says.

She also has ventured into territory rarely trod in studies on gay youths: friendships and romances. "They're adolescents first, and adolescents are obsessed with their friendship networks," she says.

They have been nicknamed 'The Untouchables' because of the reign of fear they have imposed on Catholic working-class districts of Belfast during 10 years of the peace process.

However detectives investigating the savage murder of Robert McCartney outside a city centre bar might prefer to use another name for the IRA gang responsible - 'The Inscrutables'.

    Gay teens coming out earlier to peers and family, UT, 7.2.2007,






Three of the 12 IRA members said to have been involved in the stabbing, kicking and beating of McCartney and his friend Brendan Devine on 30 January have over the past fortnight walked into Musgrave Street police station, just a brief stroll from the pub where the attack started. Under pressure from the IRA leadership as well as growing antipathy towards them from the Catholic community, all three used the same classic IRA anti-interrogation techniques as they were questioned: they remained silent, refused to answer questions and stared at the wall.
