Abstract: The aim of the thesis is to reveal psychological and social peculiarities of homosexuals in labour market. The research included a total of 92'respondents from Kaunas and Vilnius cities. They were divided into two groups: the target group consisted of homosexual individuals (N'='46, average age'='27.91), and comparative group, which consisted of traditional sexual orientation individuals (N'='46, average age'='29.76). The research was based on the following methods: 1. Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSE), which was used to measure self-esteem of a person. 2. The General Self-Efficacy Scale (M.'Jerusalem and R.'Schwarzer), which re/ects individual’s ability to cope with unexpected situations and the ability to adapt to various stressful situations. 3. Locus of Control Questionnaire (Rotter, 1965), which summarizes individual’s approach to life and shows how di-erent situations depend on his own behaviour and how much they are controlled by external factors. 4. Insecurity Questionnaire (Hellgren, Sverke, Isaksson, 1999). 5. Work Motivation Questionnaire (Geneviciute-Janoniene, 2009). 6.'Social Support Questionnaire (Sherbourne, Stewart, 1991), designed to assess how individuals perceive social support from environment. The research showed that employed and unemployed homosexuals equally express their self-esteem. However, it was revealed that there are di-erences between target and comparative groups. Employed homosexuals and traditional sexual orientation individuals express their self-esteem di-erently: gay express a higher self-esteem than heteronormative men. These results only appear among individuals employed in managerial positions who have a short period of employment (3'months to 4'years) and who are divorced or live separately. Research results showed persons who are married or live with their partner are more likely to su-er from the uncertainty at work. [...]
